My background is a Master in Computer Science with a specialization in AI (expert systems) in 1988. I made all my career at Renault, working first on expert systems, then on optimization tools for the supply chain and manufacturing. The first OR tool, a car sequencing application, went live in 1993. I switch to sales and marketing applications for 5 years, before going back to OR tools. Planning, shop scheduling, car sequencing, routing, bin packing, line balancing were among the topics I dealt with at Renault. I was nominated as Renault’s OR expert in 2018 and managed a team of 4 dedicated to the development of OR tools.
