【学术讲座】Sea container terminals: Technologies and performance trade-offs
四、主讲人： Debjit Roy教授
Professor Debjit Roy has published in several leading international journals such as Operations Research, Transportation Science, Journal of Operations Management. His specific research interests are to estimate the performance of logistical and service systems such as container terminals, automated distribution centers, vehicle rental, healthcare, and restaurant systems. In this talk, he will talk about how to improve system performance using quantitative methods such as stochastic modeling and optimization. First, he will introduce some of the systems and technologies currently in use at the sea container terminals. Then, he will describe how to eva1uate the performance of a system using quantitative techniques. Finally, he will show how to strike a balance between technology and performance.
