Longo was born in
His research interests include Modeling & Simulation for production systems design and supply chain management. In these areas specific subjects regard:
· Supply chain security. The attention is focalized on developing integrated decision support system for the supply chain security. Several studies has been carried out in the field of marine terminal security and containers inspection procedures.
· The inventory management problem along the supply chain: definition and constrained comparison of different inventory control policies by using a multi-measure based approach;
· Simulation tools for training procedures in complex environment (also by using 3D real time simulation).
He is General Chairman of the 20th European Modeling & Simulation
Symposium (which will be held in the South part of
He is Responsible of the
He has published more than 40 scientific papers on
international conferences and journals participating as speaker and chairman to
different international conferences. He participated as advisor to ICAMES 2004,
2006 and 2007 (International Cultural and Academic Meeting of Engineering
He actively cooperates with the Production Engineering
Department (Laboratory of Logistics, Simulation Team) of
He works on research projects in the field of supply chain security such as the project “Understanding the Impact of Securing Cargo Flows on the Supply Chain Performance” in cooperation with the Rutgers University and the port authority of New York – New Jersey and “Security Advances in Marine Ports in the Global Supply Chain” in cooperation with a strong European research consortium (Atos Origin, Spain; Nec Portugal; Port Authority and University of Barcelona, etc.).
Starting from 2003 he worked on private
research projects involving manufacturing and logistics systems operating in
He teaches “Design of Production Systems” and “Laboratory of Industrial Plants” respectively for students of the 2nd and 5th year in Management Engineering. He is also tutor on the courses “Industrial Plants” and “Production Systems Management” respectively for students of the 3rd and 5th year in Mechanical Engineering.
