Applications of Optimization - Best Practice and Challenges




On May 29th, 2013 the Danish Operations Research Society is pleased to introduce the full day workshop Applications of Optimization - Best Practice and Challenges. The workshop is targeted at decision makers considering adopting quantitative optimization methods in their business processes as well as managers and practitioners who seek input to ongoing projects.


The purpose of the workshop is to highlight some of the main challenges faced by organizations seeking to adopt quantitative optimization methods in their business processes. The workshop will focus on presenting the subject of business optimization in a non-technical manner.


For this fifth AOO workshop we have arranged six talks on different aspects of business analytics. We are excited about this year's program, where we have invited some of the leading experts, and we are confident that the program will be highly relevant to both practioneers in the industry as well as in the research community.


Each talk will be followed by a brief discussion session allowing you to get input on current challenges you might currently be facing or otherwise seek additional details on specific aspects of the presented topic.


The workshop especially addresses the decision makers and analytic personnel in companies starting or already working on optimization projects. Many of the aspects concerning, e.g., problem modeling or end user involvement, even though they differ in main subject, face the same challenges from company to company.


We hope that this workshop will bring people from the different companies together to be inspired by the talks on how others put optimization projects to life and to discuss in general how they can improve on business optimization.


Further details regarding the individual talks can be found in the Program.
