    Title: Development of a process reference model for construction supply chains: the contractor's view
    Year: 2014-2018
    Affiliation: National Technical University of Athens
    Primary supervisor: Professor Ilias Tatsiopoulos

    Thesis language: English

    This PhD Thesis is proposing a process reference model for construction supply chains focussing on the contractor. The outcomes, provide academics with a tool to integrate the provided processes with other supply chain views such as risk management or decision support systems. Practitioners can benefit from the specific characteristics of the model (structure, verbal and diagrammatic descriptions, developed in free software) in order to improve, benchmark and compare the performance of specific project supply chains or the performance of their entire supply chain practices and strategies.

    Title: Responding to risk of safety critical infrastructures through a systems thinking approach: the case study of road tunnels
    Year: 2010-2013
    Affiliation: National Technical University of Athens
    Primary supervisor: Assistant Professor Konstantinos Kirytopoulos

    Thesis language: English

    This PhD Thesis is about how risks in road tunnels should be managed. Risks from collisions, vehicle fire and vehicles transporting dangerous goods are currently quantified mainly by using Probabilistic Risk Analysis (PRA) procedures in order to make rational decisions regarding road tunnels safety. The research question in this Thesis is how risk management in road tunnels could be incorporated with Systems Safety principles in order to achieve maximum possible safety in such infrastructures.

    Title: Decision Making in Project Management: Multi Objective Extended Resource Constrained Project Scheduling
    Year: 2010-2013
    Affiliation: National Technical University of Athens
    Primary supervisor: Assistant Professor Konstantinos Kirytopoulos

    Thesis language: English

    A holistic approach is proposed for defining the resource constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP). The Thesis aim is to give a formulation of the project scheduling problem where all deterministic aspects that have been previously explored in the relevant literature are covered.
