BISKIT Simulation-optimization approach presented at DSI 2020!

In context of the virtual 51st Annual Conference of the Decision Sciences Institute (DSI) our BISKIT consortium partners from the University of Münster, Bernd Hellingrath and Adam Widera, hosted a mini-session on simulation-related research in context of humanitarian logistics. On November 22nd 2020, BISKIT took the opportunity to give a talk on the targeted simulation-optimization approach within the project. Melanie Reuter-Oppermann’s talk “Simulation-optimization approaches for blood logistics in South Africa” covered the limitations of existing optimization approaches in blood supply chains and presented the BISKIT simulation-optimization framework that will be used at different planning levels to improve blood logistics in South Africa.
