Lecture series on the topic of "Network Modeling, Analysis, and Visualization in Python"
Dr. Till Becker, visited Capital University of Science & Technology (CUST) from 13th March 2017 to 27th March 2017. Dr. Becker is head of Research Group “Production Systems and Logistic Systems” of the Faculty of Production Engineering and the BIBA Institute at the University of Bremen, Germany. The visit is the continuation of collaboration between the Industrial and Systems Engineering Research Group (ISER) of the Mechanical Engineering Department at CUST and BIBA Institute at University of Bremen.
The key activities during the visit were a lecture series on the topic of “Network Modeling, Analysis, and Visualization in Python” as well as the collaborative research work in the field of logistics and supply chain management. Dr. Till Becker and Dr. Mujtaba Agha (Head of the ISER Group at CUST) are working on the “Network Analysis of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)”. Their research will help in analyzing the salient aspects related to the CPEC from logistics point of view and will identify key measures such as optimum route, network robustness, etc.
This is the second visit of Dr. Till Becker to CUST and this demonstrates continuing collaboration between CUST and University of Bremen. In 2015 and 2016 Dr. Becker’s research group hosted Dr. Mujtaba Agha during his visit at University of Bremen. Further collaboration activities will continue in 2017.
ISER is a multi-disciplinary Engineering Research group actively engaged in the research activities involving the following areas:
- Production and Manufacturing Engineering
- Process Analysis and Improvement
- Supply Chain Management
- Inventory and Warehouse Management
- Logistics and Transportation
