ISCH COST Action A29
Human and Organisational Factors in Industrial Planning and Scheduling - HOPS

The main objective of HOPS is to increase the knowledge required for improving human performance in industrial planning, scheduling, and control (PSC). It is assumed that a breakthrough in these areas is a major prerequisite for a signifi cant step forward in PSC-performance of industrial organisations. The potential that is hidden in human-centred approaches most likely exceeds the untapped potential in the (prevalent) technology oriented approaches by a signifi cant amount. Although the Action aims at an integration of the isolated knowledge islands in the domain, a pluralism of research methods and approaches will be applied in order to keep a holistic perspective.

Working Groups:

* 1 Collaborative/distributed PSC

* 2 Decision Support Systems in PSC

* 3 Research methods in PSC
