Designing and operating manufacturing systems that can meet orders in a short time with a high throughput, a high service level, lower inventory levels and utilize material and energy resources efficiently is the key for competitiveness for industrial firms.

With the recent technological developments, Industry 4.0 allows collecting more data from manufacturing systems in an easier way and control them in real time.  

This talk will introduce the recent research of Dr. Tan that is aimed at creating value for manufacturers through developing data-driven performance evaluation and control methods, cooperative networks and business models.
