Dr. Gedik gave a research presentation at the 52nd Annual Meeting of Decision Sciences Institute

Dr. Gedik gave a research talk, which is an extension of our former research assistant Lu Bai’s thesis project on 11/24/2021 at the 2021 DSI Annual Meeting. The presentation was entitled “What It Takes to Win or Lose A Soccer Game? A Machine Learning Approach to Understand the Impact of Game and Team Statistics” and presentation can be accessed at this link.

In this research, we focused on building machine learning models to predict soccer game outcomes in five major soccer leagues, and extract knowledge on what factors play biggest role in winning and losing a soccer game over a 5 season data.

We would like to thank Lu for her excellent thesis work again.

Dr. Anne Zouggar gave a webinar to ASOS, ISE Student Chapter, and Supply Chain Management students

Dr. Zouggar gave a webinar in EGRM/INDE 6641 Supply Chain Management course on November 19, 2021. The seminar is entitled “Production Optimization Through Lean Implementation in The Era of Industry 4.0“.

Anne is an Associate Professor at the University of Bordeaux. She
started studying Economy at the university of Moscow, and then
transitioned to Industrial Systems Optimization at the university of
Toulouse. She received her PhD In Production/Logistics from University
of Bordeaux. Anne has published more than 30 publications in
conferences, books, and international journals. She focused mainly on
Aeronautics and Automotive Industries, which falls under Manufacturing Systems Optimization, Supply Chain Management, and development of new models to sustain Lean Production Deployment. She is also member of IFIP working group 5.7, and involved in various projects:

• I4EU: Industry 4.0 for EUROPE to build a handbook, showcases and virtual Lab for European learners. She is a leader of
work package Industrial Showcases in France. She collaborates with Dassault and Faurécia.
• GT4.0: she belongs to working Group in the department to lead an active thinking about the future master program
transformation to fit industry 4.0 expectations.
• In charge of Developing serious game “Case Study Digital Kanban in Automotive Industry”

We would like to thank deeply Dr. Anne Zouggar, Associate Professor of Associate Professor, University of Bordeaux. IMS Lab for sharing her recent research and industry consulting projects with our students and researchers.

ASOS Graduate Research Assistant presented at the Industrial and Systems Engineers 2021 Annual Meeting

Sami Khalafallah started working on this project in Fall 2020 as EGAP research assistant  with Dr. Egilmez. The conference paper, entitled ” A Stochastic Mixed Integer Linear Programming Approach to Skill-based Workforce Allocation in Serus”, was presented virtually in Manufacturing and Design Track at the 2021 IISE Annual Conference on May 23rd, 2021 5:00-5:20PM.

The research focused on developing optimization models to optimize the production output of SERU systems and compare it with traditional assembly lines by using stochastic Mixed Integer Linear Programming Models.

We congratulate Sami for his work and presentation. Presentation can be accessed here.
