Welcome on the website of the Decision Methods Laboratory (Laboratorio di Metodologie Decisionali, LaMeD).  LaMeD is part of the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Informazione of the University of Siena.

Main research activities of the Lab. concern the development of models, methods and algorithms for solving optimization problems, especially in the area of Combinatorial Optimization.
The main research fields are:

- Resource allocation and scheduling in production systems;
- Models and algorithms for multi-agent scheduling problems;
- Resource management in telecommunications systems.

LaMeD is equipped with Personal Computers with general and specialized software, such as Cplex and Xpress (solvers for linear, quadratic and integer programs), Solver (constraint logic programming solver), OPL studio (development environment for optimization problems), Arena (simulation environment).
