Brief Bio
Oleg Gusikhin is a Technical Leader at Ford Research and Advanced Engineering. He received his Ph.D. from the St. Petersburg Institute of Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Sciences, MS in Electrical Engineering from St. Petersburg State Technical University, and an MBA from the Ross Business School at the University of Michigan. For over 20 years, he has been working at Ford Motor Company in different functional areas. During his tenure at Ford, Dr. Gusikhin has been involved in the design and implementation of advanced information technology and intelligent controls for manufacturing and vehicle systems. Dr. Gusikhin is a recipient of two Henry Ford Technology Awards, 2009 Institute of Industrial Engineers Transactions Best Application Paper Prize in Scheduling and Logistics, and 2011 INFORMS Daniel H. Wagner Prize finalist. He is an Industry Vice-Chair of IFAC Technical Committee "Manufacturing Modeling for Management and Control,” and a Lecturer in the Industrial and Operations Engineering department at the University of Michigan.


Industrial engineering is a branch of engineering dealing with the optimization of complex processes or systems, well related to business-oriented disciplines such as Operations Management. Industrial engineers use computer simulation (especially discrete event simulation), along with extensive mathematical tools and modeling and computational methods for system analysis, evaluation, and optimization. Industrial simulation can help to identify inefficiencies and examine how these may be addressed. With the integration of artificial intelligence, agents and other modeling techniques, simulation has become an effective and appropriate decision support tool in industry. The MSIE special session focuses on simulation applications for the factory of the future (e.g. transformable factories, networked factories, learning factories, digital factories) in application areas such as Automotive Industries, Aerospace, CAD/CAM/CAE, Defense Electronics, Simulation in Industrial Design, Industrial and Process Simulation, Supply Chain, Power Plants, etc.
The MSIE special session invites quality papers describing original work including research ideas, case-studies and new findings on methodological and technological aspects related to Manufacturing Simulation and Industrial Engineering, in particular papers describing methods, techniques, recent advances, applications and tools.
