  • Abstract
  • In this talk, we will introduce some new initiatives in Singapore in transforming the industry into the next generation industry, in particular in the logistics and maritime sectors. We will also present some of our latest work in developing a simulation optimization framework for digital twin for various systems, such as warehouse system and port system. This framework O2DES has the capability in incorporating optimization in the simulation, and optimizing the system parameters based on simulation output.
  • Biography
  • Loo Hay LEE is an Associate Professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at National University of Singapore and was a visiting professor at the Department of Systems Engineering and Operations Research at George Mason University. Dr Lee has also been appointed as the Eastern Scholar Professor for the Shanghai Maritime University by the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission. He received his BS (Electrical Engineering) degree from the National Taiwan University in 1992 and his S.M and PhD degrees in 1994 and 1997 from Harvard University. He has has served as the associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, IIE Transactions, IEEE Transactions on Automation Science and Engineering, Flexible Services and Manufacturing Journal, Simulation: Transactions of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International, the Asia Pacific Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Industrial Engineer: Theory, Applications and Practice. He is currently the co-editor for Journal of Simulation and is a member in the advisory board for OR Spectrum. He is a senior member of IEEE, and has served as a council member in the simulation society of INFORMS. His research focuses on the simulation-based optimization, maritime logistics which includes port operations and the modeling and analysis for the logistics and supply chain system. He has co-lead a team to win the grand prize for the next generation container port challenge in 2013 by proposing a revolutionary double storey container terminal design, called SINGA Port. He is now co-lead a center of excellence for simulation and modelling for next generation port (C4NGP), and center of next generation logistics (C4NGL).
