Operations Research group - Cross project @ Lab-STICC/CACS
The Operations Research Group is part of the team Models and Tools for Circuits and Systems of the CACS department of Lab-STICC. The purpose of this group is to bring mathematical models and formal methods to handle the combinatorial optimization problems derived from electronic chip design and solve them using state-of-the-art approaches in operations research. This group is involved in a wide range of projects in the CACS department, and is focused on suggesting the most appropriate approaches and software tools for adressing combinatorial optimization problems. Privileged tools are linear and integer programming, dedicated heuristics, metaheuristics and matheuristics. The proposed methods are also applied in a more general context (Scheduling, Routing, Network sizing, Robustness, Timetabling, Graph coloring, etc). The Operations Research Group is also committed with the implementation of the proposed approaches as components of project and research softwares. See our short introduction here.
