Dr. Mohammad Humyun Fuad RAHMAN is a Research Associate at the Capability Systems Centre, the University of New South Wales, Canberra. His research lies in the area of Manufacturing System optimization considering uncertainty and disruptions, Industry 4.0, Project and Supply Chain management. Dr. Rahman obtained his PhD from the School of Engineering and IT, University of New South Wales (2011-2015), where he worked on the topic of modelling reactive scheduling problems in real-time Flow shop production environments and solving them by efficient heuristic and meta-heuristic algorithms.
He was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, Aalborg University, Denmark from 2017 to 2018. During his Postdoctoral Fellowship he developed reliable and efficient decision support systems for scheduling/rescheduling systems of Unmanned Autonomous Vehicle (UAV) fleets considering real-life constraints and the project was funded by AirBus Defence and Space. Beside this, he engaged in supervising students’ projects for solving planning and scheduling problems from Danfoss and LEGO, and was able to help them in problem identification and providing solutions to improve their existing production systems. He is also collaborating with other researchers from different countries in manufacturing optimization.
He has experienced in teaching and supervising in undergraduate and postgraduate levels in Australia and Denmark in the area of production planning and control, project and supply chain management, heuristic and meta-heuristic algorithms, and inventory management.
