Researchers from the Università Politecnica delle Marche participated in the XXVIII AIDI “Francesco Turco” Summer School, held in Genoa, Italy, from 05/09/2023 to 08/09/2023, with the presentation entitled “Systematic literature review of artificial intelligence in production scheduling problems in real cases”.

Under the motto “Blue, Resilient & Sustainable Supply Chain: the Role of Industrial Plants in Procurement, Production and Distribution”, the “Francesco Turco” Summer School promotes interaction and cooperation between researchers from different universities and strengthens the feeling of belonging to the scientific sector of Industrial Systems Engineering.

UNIVPM’s participation focused on AI applications in the field of production scheduling. Industry 4.0 has revolutionized the scheduling problem by providing real-time data availability, predictive maintenance capabilities, optimization algorithms, flexibility, integration of supply chain data, and collaborative platforms. These advancements empower schedulers to make data-driven decisions, adapt to changes more efficiently, optimise resource allocation, and improve overall scheduling effectiveness. As a result, companies can enhance their operational efficiency, reduce downtime, and gain a competitive edge in the market. Consequently, scheduling AI algorithms can play a significant role in enhancing a company’s competitiveness in today’s fast-paced business environment with their related benefits. In this context and for this purpose the European project AIDEAS ‘Fabrication Optimiser’ tool wants to realise an AI-based scheduling tool.
