Track Description
Companies operating in food, beverage and perishable goods sector often face problems that are not commonly seen in other industrial fields. Main difficulties are related to the need to manage raw materials and products whose quality and characteristics are affected by environmental conditions and time. Hence, the whole of supply, stocking, production and distribution activities have to be strictly coordinated and managed in such a way as to guarantee high quality standards, customer needs fulfillment, shelf-life tolerance, traceability, and cost and energy savings.
The Track offers the possibility to present results and critical issues concerning processes design and operations management in food, beverage and perishable goods industry using Modeling and Simulation as methodological approach. Topics of interest include:

· Modeling and simulation of food processes;
· Comparison and optimization of emerging food technologies;
· Risk assessment, food safety and shelf-life prediction;
· Analysis and modeling of food packaging;
· Food processing sustainability;
· Traceability;
· Production planning and scheduling;
· Supply chain and cold chain design and management;
· Inventory management and storage area design;
· Automation of production processes and logistics;

Nevertheless, different topics concerning processes and operations management in food industry are welcome as well. Authors are kindly invited to include in their papers and presentations all the research works, case studies and application both theoretical and applied.
