Abstract
There are Optimization Problems that are too complex to be solved efficiently by deterministic methods. For these problems, where deterministic methods have proven to be inefficient, if not completely unusable, it is common to use approximate methods, that is, optimization methods that solve the problems quickly, regardless of their size or complexity, even if they do not guarantee optimal solutions. In other words, methods that find “acceptable” solutions, efficiently. One particular type of approximate method, which is particularly effective in complex problems, are metaheuristics. Particle Swarm Optimization is a population-based metaheuristic, which has been particularly successful. In order to broaden the application and overcome the limitation of Particle Swarm Optimization, a discrete version of the metaheuristics is proposed. The Discrete Particle Swarm Optimization, DPSO, will change the PSO algorithm so it can be applied to discrete optimization problems. This alteration will focus on the velocity update equation. The DPSO was tested in an instance of the Traveling Salesman Problem, att48, 48 points problems proposed by Padberg and Rinaldi, which showed some promising results. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Abstract
In this paper, a decision support application, for the air cargo planning and distribution, is proposed. The freight forwarding sector has been working to be assertive and efficient in responding to the market through an efficient approach to planning and allocation problems. The main goal is to minimize costs and improve performance. A real air cargo distribution problem for a freight forwarder was addressed. This project emerged from the need to efficiently plan and minimize costs for the distribution of thousands of m(3) (cubic meters) of air cargo, while considering the market restrictions, such as aircraft availability and transportation fees. Through the GRG algorithm adaptation to the real problem, it was possible to respond to the main goal of this paper. The development of an easy-to-use application ensures a quick response in the air distribution planning, focusing on cost reduction in transportation. With the application development it is possible to obtain real earnings with immediate effect.

Abstract
Risk assessment is a theme of large spectrum applied in different fields. In the context of Virtual / Collaborative Enterprises there are several risks whose assessment should be aware to avoid undesirable consequences either for entire networked or for a partner in particular. The objective of this work is centered on the creation of a framework / guidelines to serve as a basis for the creation of a better risk assessment model for Virtual / Collaborative Enterprises. This work analyzed the few models available in the literature and identified some gaps that were used to purpose complementary guidelines for the design and / or improve the future risk assessment models. The pointed guidelines covered three important topics: risk factors; assessment methods; and the impact in different life cycle phases of a Virtual / Collaborative Enterprise. Considering the results of the work it is our conviction that there is space to improve the research in this field and a more robust and flexible risk assessment model should be developed.

Abstract
This paper presents a Cyber Physical System (CPS) laboratory based on Open Design, called Open Science Laboratory for Manufacturing (OSLab4Man), with educational and research purpose and the potential contribute and (direct and indirect) effects regarding the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A short introduction describing the 17 SDG, the education for sustainability role, and the relevance of the framed CPS. A literature review of CPS laboratories that are addressed to sustainability is presented. The OSLab4Man is describe in the educational purpose lens. Then, the contribute of the OSLab4Man as an education tool for sustainability regarding the 17 SDGs is reflected. Finally, the conclusions of this work and future works are highlighted. © 2021 ACM.
