The LAGIS main research themes are: automatic control, computer science and signal processing.  More specifically, this project is addressed by members of the OLS research team “Optimization of Logistics Systems”. Among recent projects conducted by members of OLS, projects on distribution network design, on city logistics and on real-time fleet management can be quoted.

Role: 

EC Lille is involved on two work packages: WP3A15 and WP4. Considering WP3A15, the main task is to implement the layer between the EPC-network and the available open source ERPs. Open Source ERPs, among which are Compiere or Open ERP, have clearly attained some maturity level and have to be considered as ERP solutions specifically for SMBs. With respect to WP4, the OLS researchers are mainly involved on the WP4A17 devoted to the last-mile E-commerce delivery service. This use cases is in accordance with their expertise on city logistics.
