About the thesis:
PhD thesis is dedicated to the development of novel and sophisticated algorithms for a real-life problem faced by oil ang gas companies operating offshore. The problem involves the planning of supply vessels delivering material and equipment to the offshore oil and gas installations. The data is provided by the Norwegian energy company Equinor. The problem is of a large size involving many constraints and is complicated by uncertain weather conditions and demand et installations. The solution approach involves the combination of metaheuristic algorithm with the discrete event simulation.
The developed methodology can be used to solve large combinatorics problems with stochastic demand and travel times. Existing literature dedicated to the classical periodic routing problems with stochastic parameters is rather scarce.
Yauheni Kisialiou (age 38) comes from Belarus. He became a Bachelor in Engineering in 2003 and in Economy in 2007 from Belarusian State University. He holds a Master of Science degree in Logistics from Molde University College from 2013. Kisialiou has been employed as a scholarship holder at Molde University College during his PhD-studies.
