"Analysis of Manufacturing Systems -

Production Management"

May 20-25, 2005 - Zakynthos Island, Greece


General Information




The primary orientation of these series of conferences is the reporting of new research in the general area of mathematical modelling, analysis, design and optimization of Manufacturing Systems.  

Manufacturing Systems are broadly interpreted to include not only the basic production system used in the manufacture of the product but the material and product flow lines and information systems from supplier to final customer including the final disposal or recycling of the product.

The scope of "design" as far as the conference is concerned, incorporates the overall conceptual design as well as the more detailed sub-system design.

"Analysis" covers not only understanding how the manufacturing system operates but also how it should be used to achieve desired operations management and top level company objectives.

"Optimization" of Manufacturing Systems captures all the procedures to improve the performance of Manufacturing Systems via the use of various techniques in various problems such as the buffer allocation problem, the workload allocation problem, the server allocation problem, the number and the ordering of the workstations of these systems, among others.

The conference particularly welcomes papers related to the use of analytical and mathematical methods to industrial based projects.

The scope of the Conference is to serve as a forum for researchers, academics and industrialists in the broad area of Manufacturing Systems Analysis to discuss their most recent research findings and to provide them with an opportunity for technology transfer. Some opportunities for collaborative research work arose out of the previous three Conferences and there will be similar opportunities on this occasion.


The fundamental theme of the Conference is the application of mathematical methods in the analysis of manufacturing/production systems -- production management. Papers are invited on the topics listed below but papers on other topics will also be considered.
