He has participated also in several European Projects of V-CHAIN Project (Virtual Enterprise for Supply Chain Management-GRD1-2000-25881) and University leader of ECOSELL (Extended Collaborative Selling Chain- GRD1-2001-40692), UEML (Unified Enterprise Modelling Language- IST - 2001 - 34229, a Thematic Network) and V-CHAIN ASIA-IT (ASI/B7-301/97/0126-49). Prof. Angel Ortiz has  developed projects about SCM, BPM, IT and Enterprise Engineering in several enterprises from different sectors (automotive, tiles, furniture, beverages, food, packaging, textile, etc.). I am a member of the IFAC TC5.3 “Enterprise Integration and Networking” and IFIP TC5 WG 5.12 “Architectures for Enterprise Integration”. He has participated in several Masters in Spain and courses in others countries like France, Mexico and Sweden.

 Session  Scope

The goal of this workshop is to deal with new proposals in the decision support system (DSS) field related with the integration of the decision-making process concerning Supply Chain Management (SCM) with special focus on demand management and operations planning in a dynamic and distributed environment.

DSS is a computer-based information system, which assists manager in their decision-making process. New requirements needs new DSS proposals to include improvements on the data management, decision models, interaction among systems and people in global decision process.

Special focus will be made over complex decisions where:

1) the DSS proposes different solutions using different decision models or

2) the DSS include a sequential decision process where sub-DSS outputs are inputs for other sub-DSS

Session Topics

Decision Support System is a multidisciplinary research area that can be applied in several sectors.

This special session will be focused to new proposals in the DSS field dealing with:

T.1.1. The main components in DSS

  • Data: Models, Aggregation/Disaggregation, ETL , Data-Driven DSS
  • Decision Models: Mathematical Programming, Solvers, Rules, Expert Systems
  • Processes: Decision sequence, Interaction steps
  • User Interfaces: Interface design, Novel interaction techniques, usability

T.1.2. Complex decisions solved using different models and sequential DSS where DSS outputs are inputs for other DSS

T.1.3. Application in Supply Chain Management using a period-driven or an event-driven approach

T.1.4. DSS Experiences in the industry

T.1.5. DSS in Education

Session Scope 

The convergence in communication networks and computing has led the exponential growth of new applications and information systems. Nowadays, users and applications generate and request more data demanding efficient and secure management. New algorithms are needed to manage the network resource allocation improving the network performance, response against failures, congestion and attacks; and to avoid loss of confidentiality, integrity or availability in the network.
