Operations Research and Management Systems Group

Group Head: Krzysztof Pieńkosz, Ph.D., D.Sc..

The subject of the Group's research are optimization models for various classes of decision-making problems and algorithms and methods of management process support. They are related to making decisions in various operational situations, planning, scheduling and managing various classes of discrete processes. Application works are also carried out, enabling the application and verification of the tested models when designing IT management systems. Optimization models and scheduling and planning algorithms concern both centralized structures of management systems as well as distributed ones, functioning in conditions of market competition. Models and auction mechanisms are being developed for competitive multi-commodity markets operating under conditions of constraint, having broad application prospects in various infrastructural areas, including electricity markets and other areas, such as telecommunications and ICT, environmental protection or markets of comprehensive services offered in packages. In the area of technologies for information management systems, new information technologies for various business applications are being developed and developed. In particular, possibilities of using object-oriented databases and XML objects to create management support systems are developed and an open standard for trade data exchange M3 (Multicommodity Market Model) is developed.
