Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Project management
  • Management

Project management, Operations research, Schedule, Mathematical optimization and Earned value management are his primary areas of study. His work in Project management covers topics such as Problem set which are related to areas like Time switch, Type, Construction management and Resource. Mario Vanhoucke combines subjects such as Supply chain management, Scheduling, Duration and Nurse scheduling problem with his study of Operations research.

Mario Vanhoucke has researched Schedule in several fields, including Resource management, Genetic algorithm, Heuristics, Earned schedule and Job shop scheduling. The Mathematical optimization study which covers Discrete time and continuous time that intersects with Upper and lower bounds and Critical path method. The Earned value management study combines topics in areas such as Software project management and Basis of estimate.

His most cited work include:

  • A hybrid scatter search/electromagnetism meta-heuristic for project scheduling (267 citations)
  • A hybrid scatter search/electromagnetism meta-heuristic for project scheduling (267 citations)
  • A comparison of different project duration forecasting methods using earned value metrics (238 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Mario Vanhoucke mainly investigates Operations research, Schedule, Mathematical optimization, Project management and Earned value management. His Operations research study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Quality, Duration, Staffing, Schedule and Scheduling. His Schedule research also works with subjects such as

  • Project planning and related Project management triangle,
  • Resource that intertwine with fields like Total cost.

His Mathematical optimization research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Job shop scheduling and Benchmark. His research in Project management intersects with topics in Resource management and Engineering management. The various areas that Mario Vanhoucke examines in his Earned value management study include Industrial engineering, Work breakdown structure, Operations management, Earned schedule and Basis of estimate.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Operations research (81.35%)
  • Schedule (75.99%)
  • Mathematical optimization (54.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Operations research (81.35%)
  • Schedule (75.99%)
  • Job shop scheduling (44.44%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Mario Vanhoucke spends much of his time researching Operations research, Schedule, Job shop scheduling, Resource and Schedule. His Operations research research integrates issues from Supply chain, Staffing, Work in process and Heuristic. Project management covers Mario Vanhoucke research in Schedule.

His study focuses on the intersection of Job shop scheduling and fields such as Genetic algorithm with connections in the field of Core and Variety. His Resource research includes elements of Wind power, Process, Resource management, Heuristics and Renewable energy. His Schedule study deals with Resource constrained intersecting with Project scheduling problem, Crossover and Empirical research.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Using Schedule Risk Analysis with resource constraints for project control (3 citations)
  • Using Schedule Risk Analysis with resource constraints for project control (3 citations)
  • Using Schedule Risk Analysis with resource constraints for project control (3 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Statistics
  • Management
  • Project management

His primary areas of study are Schedule, Resource, Job shop scheduling, Operations research and Project management. His Schedule study incorporates themes from Duration and Standard deviation. His Duration study combines topics in areas such as Earned value management, Plan, Network analysis, Process and Program evaluation and review technique.

In his research on the topic of Resource, Variety, Core and Genetic algorithm is strongly related with Heuristics. His Operations research research incorporates themes from Workload, Staffing, Schedule, Discrete time and continuous time and Heuristic. His research in Project management focuses on subjects like Baseline, which are connected to Project planning and Phase.
