Artificial Intelligence in Logistics 4.0

The term "Logistics 4.0" was coined a few years ago in close association with the wider known "Industry 4.0" concept, which refers to successive industrial revolutions: from mechanization with steam engines, through electrification and computerization, and reaching the use of intelligent and automated systems based on data in the 4th revolution. In Logistics, the same evolution has been followed and it is now the moment in which Artificial Intelligence is beginning to be used to improve processes.

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.
