Séminaire invité – John W. Fowler (Motorola Professor of Supply Chain Management / Arizona State University)
14 octobre 2019 @ 10 h 30 min - 12 h 30 min
John W. Fowler, Motorola Professor of Supply Chain Management, W.P. Carey School of Business à Arizona State University, est accueilli à l'IMT-A la
la semaine du 14 octobre. Il interviendra dans le Master MPLP pour le cours "Fundamentals of Supply Chain Management". Il est ex-Chair du département
Supply Chain Management qui est classé no. 2 à l'USA (juste derrière MIT).
Lundi 14 octobre, à partir de 10h30, il animera un séminaire sur "The Use of Simulation in Genetic Algorithms"en amphi Besse.
Resumé : In this talk, we discuss two research efforts that used discrete event simulation as a solution evaluator within a genetic algorithm. The
first effort was a study focused on scheduling patients’ surgeries in an outpatient procedure clinic. The second involved evaluating remote
diagnostic investment decisions for semiconductor equipment suppliers. While the goal in the second study was to determine the best long-term
solution, we made extensive use of short simulations in the early iterations of the genetic algorithm.
