The LOgistique COopérative et Optimisation (LOCO2) team focuses on the modelling and optimization of production and transportation planning activities. The work is oriented towards the implementation of advanced methodologies in approximate optimization (metaheuristics) and exact optimization (integer linear programming, decomposition methods) to overcome the complexity of the related problems (NP-hard problems).
Two fields of application are privileged by integrating the dimension of emissions reduction in the objective function:
This axis focuses on multi-level vehicle routing problems, flow problems in distribution systems (in collaboration with Kyoto University and the Inria center of the University of Bordeaux).
In the framework of the factory of the future, this work targets on workshop layout problems equipped with transport systems based on autonomous mobile robots.
