Dear colleagues,

As part of the 16th IFAC Symposium on Information Control Problems in Manufacturing INCOM 2018 (Bergamo Italy) from June. 11th to 13th, 2018, we are organizing a special session on

Optimization of advanced manufacturing systems with risk and quality issues.

Objectives and topics Integrated approaches in the management and the design of production aims to take into account simultaneously several production constraints such maintenance scheduling,  machines reliability, production planning, inventory sizes, quality control, human resources management, risk management, ...This session deals with studies intergreting  joint decisions or constraints relating to maintenance strategies, risk management, quality control and production management.

You are invited to submit original papers dealing with applications of optimization and simulation techniques related to the following topics: 


  • Mathematical programming models of advanced manufacturing systems with risk and quality issues, maintenance scheduling,…
  • Exact and hybrid algorithms
  • Simulation and robust optimization
  • Modern meta-heuristic algorithms
  • Multi-criteria decision making methods


Keywords: manufacturing, risk management, quality management, optimization, simulation
