This list is for the discussion of the use of Genetic Algorithms in Production Scheduling Problems.

The Strategic Agenda and Goals of the group include the following: 1. Federate and promote research and establish interfaces with relevant research fields. 1.1 Promote maintenance as an interdisciplinary science, blending knowledge from management, engineering, technological and technical field. 1.2 Contribute to the development of a general framework for advanced maintenance systems, establishing interfaces with production management and manufacturing plant control. 1.3 Promote and evolve the research agenda, including perspectives and foresight in the field, with regard to the intersection of technology, engineering and management. 1.4 Involve new and experienced researchers in the A-MEST WG community, considering the relevance of their knowledge and expertise to contribute to the research agenda, and the need to enhance global coverage and participation. 1.5 Promote the relationships of the WG with other technical committees TCs within IFAC, besides the TC 5.1, and with other scientific and technical organizations and communities (e.g., IFIP, ESREL, ISEAM, PHM, EFNMS, …). #2. Promote competence, growth and exchange of students, PhDs and young researchers. 2.1 Involve young researchers in the A-MEST WG community, through actions specifically done to attract their interest. 3. Promote academia-industry partnerships and highlight the impact of maintenance in industry and society. 3.1 Promote industry-academia partnerships, attracting industrial experts through specific actions for their active involvement in the A-MEST WG community. 3.2. Promote the role of maintenance for sustainability (economic, environmental, social impacts), highlighting technological enablers. 4. Promote and improve education and training in maintenance. 4.1. Steer the organisation of events, special sessions and other activities to facilitate best knowledge diffusion, 4.2. Maintain active push towards education and training activities in the above events via tutorials, industrial case studies and facilitate the exchange of junior and/or senior researchers and professionals.

This list is an interdisciplinary forum for anyone with an interest in shale and mudstone research. The list facilitates discussions on any aspect of shale research, including shale gas and oil shale exploration and production. The list is used to make announcements about shale research projects, workshops, meetings, and publications.


To support the growing community of researchers in HE involved with improving the performance of small and medium-sized manufacturing companies. The list is an offshoot of and will support the SMESME conference series begun in 1998.
