Operations Research (OR), Applied Statistics and Modelling (ROSAS)

ROSAS, in addition to the evocation of a nice symmetrical figure inscribed in a circle, refers here to a UTT department centered on the domains of Operational Research, Applied Statistics and Simulation.

The department is primarily responsible for providing the necessary resources for the research activities of its 3 teams and for ensuring a balance between Teaching / Research / Valorization.

Since 2016, the ROSAS department has been managing the human resources and the main equipments of the following ICD teams:
  • Gamma3: The Automatic Generation of Meshes and Advanced Methods Troyes team,
  • LOSI: The Logistics and Industrial Systems Optimization team,
  • M2S: The Modelling and Systems Dependability team.
The disciplinary spectrum covered by the department members includes expertise in the following scientific fields:
  • Operational Research, Operational Safety, Optimization, Production, Logistics, Transport, Maintenance, Signal Processing, Image Processing, Artificial Intelligence, Detection, Applied Statistics, Numerical Models for Simulation, Adaptive Meshing, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science....
  • The members of the department contribute to the courses delivered at UTT mainly in preparatory cycle, engineering formation and Master's programs of the university. They mainly teach scientific disciplines related to their research work: mathematics, statistics, basic computing, industrial systems, logistics, production, data processing...
Valorization is carried out under different types of partnerships implying institutional (metropolitan, departmental, regional, state, etc.) and industrial partners. These collaborations can benefit of numerous UTT research platforms.

The ROSAS department is responsible, on its own or jointly, for the research resources of 4 of these platforms:
  • Living Lab ActivAgeing: in collaboration with the HETIC department, this platform is intended to work on active ageing, e-health and the autonomy of older people. It offers an environment for the study, development and evaluation of technological and organizational solutions for seniors. It is located in Troyes, with an extension in Chalons en Champagne.
  • CyberSec: in collaboration with the HETIC department, this platform offers an environment for the development, testing and qualification of solutions for information system security and the fight against cybercrime. It is also intended to promote academic and industrial partnerships around these fields.
  • Capsec: Created in 2007 with the support of the Champagne-Ardenne region, it is a platform for experimentation and validation of technological solutions based on wireless sensor networks. This platform is open to both industrial and academic partnerships.
  • FFCA: As part of the industrial transition (Industry 4.0), the "Factories of Future Champagne Ardenne FFCA" platform project is supported by UTT and URCA. At the end of its deployment (planned for 2020), it will provide a training, research and support environment for companies to improve their performances.
