OR : Research

For the Operations Research section it is important, that the group covers the whole spectrum from the collection of data and problem analysis in the one end, to the practical implementation in the other end.

The areas, which the OR - section is focusing on, can be divided according to the specific application or according to the tools which are used or developed. Of actual applications one can mention logistics, transport optimization, vehicle routing or the location of facilities, production and inventory planning, timetabling and crew scheduling.

Of specific tools one can mention methods for solving continuous and discrete optimization problems (branch and bound, Lagrange relaxation and decomposition, sub-gradient optimization, dynamic programming), development of metaheuristics (simulated annealing, tabu search, genetic algorithms and neural networks) and the use of parallel computers.
