Workshop Data Driven Operations Management
Date/location:  24-26 October,
De Groene Loper 5, Eindhoven
We identify a noticeable paradigm shift in operations management problems
towards an integration of statistics and operations management. This shift can be
mainly attributed to technological developments, such as the Internet of Things,
sensor technology, and social networks. With the aforementioned de­velopments, all
kind of data becomes highly available and may be exploited so as to lead to better
strategic, tactical, and operational decisions. The work­shop will focus on the following
practical application Data-Driven Opera­tions Management areas: behavioral operations
management, production, mainte­nance and inventory management, retail, health-care
operations, road traffic and com­­munication networks, logistics and revenue management. 
The aim of the workshop is to identify the relevant methodological needs within the
interface of statistics and operations management and to bridge the corresponding
scientific communities. Our focus will be on answering questions such as: 

 

-   What are the new performance evaluation and decision problems that one
obtains by the use of the extra data? 

-   How can these problems be solved? 

-   What is the value of the extra data? 

-   Do we need new methodologies to study these problems, e.g., methods that
combine statistics and operations research? 

-   How do we interpret decisions based on statistical data, e.g., how do we deal
with the risk involved and should there be a behavioral operations research/management?

Registration is free, but compulsory for ALL speakers and participants.
