Welcome

to the website of the series of scientific conferences on Stochastic Models of Manufacturing and Service Operations.

This series has been initiated in 1997 by Prof. Chrissoleon Papadopoulos (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki). The conferences are organized with a biennial cycle. The participants are leading researchers from all over the world working in the areas ...

  • Design and optimization of production lines under conditions of randomness
  • Application of queueing models to the analysis of production and service systems
  • Production control (Kanban, CONWIP, PAC, ...)

Next Conference

  • 2017 (Italy, location currently not fixed)
