Miscellaneous section: 7th International Workshop on Human Factors in Planning, Scheduling and Control in Manufacturing
Workshop organized by the Faculty of Management & Organization, University of Groningen, Groningen The Netherlands, June 13th — 15th 2005
The overall objective of the workshop is to enhance and deepen the understanding of human factors in planning, scheduling and control. The workshop brings together the leading researchers in a wide range of disciplines, for example, engineering, cognitive and social psychology, sociology, IT, and operations management. The workshop is closely connected to the EU-funded COST Action “Human and Organisational Factors in Industrial Planning and Scheduling” (Hops). HOPS is expected to bring major advances to the field of human factors in planning, scheduling and control in Europe in the coming years. This makes active ongoing cooperation with researchers outside of Europe imperative, and it gives the workshop an important mediating role in a global context.
The workshop will include invited presentations and presentations of submitted papers. Young researchers and PhD students are strongly encouraged to participate. A great deal of time will be given to discussions between the participants.
Topics include (but are not limited to) discussions on theory development of human aspects of planning and scheduling, research methodology, the gap between theory and practice, and collaboration of planners in the supply chain.
