MIS­OR Re­search

Operations Research (OR) is an interdisciplinary field that solves decision-making problems of individuals, organisations and societies with the help of multidisciplinary theories, mathematical models and methods, computer algorithms and IT-based decision support systems. The broad spectrum of today's OR application areas includes, for example, supply chain optimisation, capacity planning and work optimisation in production, portfolio optimisation in finance, pandemic modelling and disaster management, sustainable transport planning, and the design and optimisation of transport, energy and IT networks.


In our research, we focus on developing models and solutions for increasingly important societal challenges, including sustainable mobility, energy-efficient production and natural disaster management. On the other hand, we conduct research on the applicability of high-performance computers to efficiently solve problems in various application areas.
