Mathieu Wauters is a Research Assistant in the
Operations Management group of the faculty of
Economics and Business Administration at Ghent
University (Belgium). He obtained a master’s degree
in Business Engineering from Ghent University
and joined the OR&S group in 2010. Mathieu’s
research interest lies in the optimization of time/
cost trade-offs in project scheduling and its link to
project control using earned value management. He
has presented his work at the Project Management
and Scheduling Conference and is responsible
for the exercise teaching sessions of the Project
Management course. He can be contacted at
Mario Vanhoucke is a Professor of Business
