Purpose and historyThe purpose of the EURO Working Group on Lot Sizing (denoted as EWG LOT) is to advance the development and application of Operations Research methods, techniques and tools to the field of lot sizing. Both academic and applied research will be supported by this Working Group.

Lot sizing refers to the activity of constructing production and distribution plans in which decisions have to be taken on the level and timing of production or transportation lots, usually for several different products at the same time. The objective is typically profit maximization, which in many cases boils down to minimizing the total costs while satisfying the customers’ demand. Lot sizing is a central step in the optimization of overall supply chain activities. Efficient plans give companies a competitive advantage through lower costs and improved customer service.

The objectives of the EWG LOT are as follows:
 Promote lot sizing as an independent and important research area;
 Promote communication (forum to share information, ideas and experiences) among individuals working in the field;
 Promote the cooperation between members through joint projects;
 Promote the publication of special issues and books related to this field;
 Promote the organization of meetings and the setting up of a web page dedicated to the field;
 Promote the organization of summer or winter schools and other training events on lot sizing.

Its main areas of interest are:
 Characterization of novel lot-sizing problems (new objective function, new constraints, multiple criteria, …);
 Complexity analysis;
 New solution approaches for large and complex lot-sizing problems;
 Identifying and solving industrial extensions to classical lot-sizing problems;
 Integration of lot sizing with other research fields: Scheduling, cutting and packing, distribution or vehicle routing;
 Effect of dealing with real life instances.

The EURO Working Group on Lot Sizing was created in 2014 by Bernardo Almada-Lobo and Stéphane Dauzère-Pérès who were the first coordinators.

A rule of the Working Group is that coordinators stay at most 4 years consecutively. Christian Almeder replaced Bernardo Almada-Lobo as coordinator in 2016, and Wilco van den Heuvel replaced Stéphane Dauzère-Pérès in 2018.
