A new paper by Dr. Nadi Serhan Aydın (with Prof. Dr. Martin Rainer) titled “A robust bi-objective mathematical model for disaster rescue units allocation and scheduling with learning effect” has been published in Computers & Industrial Engineering. The paper proposes a novel bi-objective mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) model for allocating and scheduling disaster rescue units considering the learning effect. The presented decision support model is expected to help decision-makers of emergency relief centers to provide efficient planning for rescue units during natural disasters.
Istinye University Department of Industrial Engineering has signed an Erasmus+ agreement for student/staff exchange partnership with the Department of Industrial Engineering at Politehnica University of Bucharest (Romania). Within the scope of the program, students who are at least 2nd grade will be eligible to apply for an Erasmus grant of 3-12 months to study at the partner university. Students who wish to apply to the program must apply through the International Office.
The project submitted to 2535 TÜBİTAK-MSRT Joint Project Call by Dr. Nadi Serhan Aydın in collaboration with Iranian researchers Prof. İraj Mahdavi and Dr. Erfan Babaee’s, and titled “Multi-Criteria Decision Making, Mathematical Modeling and Dynamic Programming for Sustainable Mass Production Planning” has been selected for grant. The project aims to solve a multi-objective optimization problem in manufacturing by implementing environmental, economic and social sustainability criterias within the model through a multi-criteria decision making algorithm, thereby developing a sustainability-based production model. Dr. Mustafa Mısır, our Head of Computer Engineering, is also taking part in the project.
A new paper by Nadi Serhan Aydın (with Prof. Dr. Martin Rainer) titled “Asset-backed Stable Numéraire Approach for Sustainable Valuation” is accepted for publication in the Journal of Sustainable Finance and Investment. The article reveals the de-stabilizating effect on financial and non-financial asset prices of the conventional evaluation instruments in the field of financial engineering such as “stochastic short rate” and provides a new sustainability-based financial “benchmark” for asset valuation.
