Pascal Notz receives Dissertation Award of the German Society for Operations Research26.04.2023
Pascal Notz received the doctoral dissertation award of the German Society for Operations Research (Gesellschaft für Operations Research - GOR) for his thesis „Prescriptive Analytics for Data Driven Capacity Management".
Pascal Notz developed new and extremely innovative approaches for capacity planning in logistics and other service industries. The novelty of his work lies in a combination of machine learning and optimization techniques that leverage a large amount of data to better prescribe capacity decisions. In his research, Pascal was not only able to develop very strong theoretical results, but was also able to demonstrate that his approaches can lead to performance improvements of up to 50 % compared to traditional methods that are currently employed in the logistics and service sector. His work has been published in the best international journals of our discipline (see here) and is likely to shape, how capacity planning will be carried out in future.
In 2022, Pascal also received the Scientific Award of the German Logistics Association. (https://www.wiwi.uni-wuerzburg.de/lehrstuhl/bwl11/news-and-dates/news/single/news/default-4a5b02459b/)
