    Abstract : Most optimization problems found in the real world cannot be solved using analytical methods. For these types of difficult optimization problems, an alternative approach is needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis of manufacturing supply chains using system dynamics and multi-objective optimization

    Author : Tehseen Aslam; Amos H.C. Ng; Daniel Tesfamariam Semere; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Supply Chain Management; System Dynamics; Multi-Objective Optimization; Technology; Teknik;

    Abstract : Supply chains are in general complex networks composed of autonomous entities whereby multiple performance measures in different levels, which in most cases are in conflict with each other, have to be taken into account. Hence, due to the multiple performance measures, supply chain decision making is much more complex than treating it as a single objective optimization problem. READ MORE
