Some aspects of refinery planning (or: Some impression from a recent thesis)
Wednesday 24 April 2002 at 15.30, JCMB 6324


This talk will summarize the content of a recent Swedish thesis titled: "Production Scheduling and Shipment Planning at Oil Refineries: Optimization Based Methods".

The main focus will be on the scheduling in the processing units and on transportation on some of the products.

The scheduling problem is formulated as a discrete choice between predefined production modes. Both b&b and tabu search are tried as solution methods.

The transportations problem is tried solved by two slightly different column generation methods.
