OptNAR team (UPM) in final of AIMMS/MOPTA modeling competition


Three UPM students are finalist AIMMS/MOPTA modeling competition. The OptNAR team, consisting of Raúl Pulido, Natalia Ibañez and Adrián Aguirre (INTEC), will present the results of their solution to a specific ‘Operating theater planning problem’ at the MOPTA conference on 14-16 August in Bethlehem, America.

They are researching at the UPM, in the Industrial Engineering doctorate program in the Math-based Decision Making in Logistics and Operations.

In this competition, teams consider a particular instance of an OR scheduling and sequencing problem. The goal of each team is to develop effective, quantitative, user-friendly tools to support an OR manager’s scheduling and sequencing decisions by using the AIMMS modeling environment.
