Title: Optimization models and solution methods to support decisions for the production planning of furniture plants

Abstract
This project aims to developing and applying optimization models and solution methods to support decisions for the production planning of furniture plants. A case study will be conducted in plants located at the northwest region of the state of São Paulo-Brasil with the objective to improve the plant productivity. Mixed Integer mathematical Models together with decomposition solution methods are to be developed and integrated in a Decision Support System already in test by the Modeling and Optimization group at UNESP-São José do Rio Preto, Brazil. Considering that the optimization problems involved in production planning of furniture plants are of combinatorial nature, the need to develop solution wise efficient mathematical models is a challenge expected to be answered with this project development.

Deadline for application: May 04, 2014.

Additional information about this call should be requested to Profa. Socorro Rangel (socorro@ibilce.unesp.br).
