Research area

Manufacturing system design & operation 
1
The design and operation of manufacturing systems are fundamental topics in the research field of Industrial Engineering. We study design and operational issues in automated manufacturing systems producing high-tech products such as semiconductor products, PCBs, LCDs, and LEDs.
Sample paper: “Multi-product lot merging/splitting algorithms for semiconductor wafer fabrication”[Link]

Production planning and scheduling in supply chains
2
We develop solution methods for production planning and scheduling problems of various systems such as flowshops, assembly lines, and automated manufacturing systems based on operations research techniques. We also study facility location problems and inventory management problems of supply chains composed of suppliers, manufacturing plants, warehouse, and/or retailers. In doing so, we consider various restrictions or constraints that appear in real manufacturing systems to improve the effectiveness of our research.
Sample paper: “Inventory control in a two-level supply chain with risk pooling effect”[Link]

Operations scheduling  
3
We study various operations scheduling problems such as single-machine, parallel-machine, flowshop, and jobshop scheduling with various objections. We consider not only those typical scheduling problems but also hybrid flowshops and problems with constraints that occur frequently in real systems.
We analyze characteristics of those problems and find properties of optimal solutions, and develop solution methods such as branch and bound algorithms that give optimal solution and efficient heuristics that give reasonably good solution in short time.
Sample paper: “Minimizing total tardiness in a two-machine re-entrant flowshop with sequence-dependent setup times”  [Link]
