Sizing, Lot Scheduling and Production Planning* (organized by the EURO
Working Group on Lot Sizing - EWG LOT)

at the

*29th European Conference on Operational Research*, Valencia, Spain,

multi-machine systems, perishable goods, green lot sizing;
* Solution methods for lot-sizing problems: heuristics,
metaheuristics, exact methods, and hybrid approaches;
