A New Mathematical Model for a Multi-product Supply Chain Network with a Preventive Maintenance Policy
The supply chain network design (SCND) implicates decision-making at a strategic level and makes it possible to create an effective and helpful context for managing. The aim of the network is to minimize the total cost so that customer's demands should be met. Preventive maintenance is pre-determined work performed to a schedule with the aim of preventing the wear and tear or sudden failure of equipment components. Unfortunately, there is very little work on the issues of preventive maintenance in the SCND. At first, a mixed integer nonlinear programming model (MINLP) is formulated that maximaize the profit of the network. Since the SCND is an NP-hard problem, we use three meta-heuristic algorithms, namely tabu search, harmony search and genetic algorithm to solve the given problem. Taguchi method is also used to adjust the significant parameters of the forgoing meta-heuristics and select the optimal levels of the influential factors for the better algorithm performance. The results of different numerical experiments endorse the effectiveness of the HS algorithm.
A new multi-objective mathematical model for a Citrus supply chain network design: Metaheuristic algorithms
Nowadays, the citrus supply chain has been motivated by both industrial practitioners and researchers due to several real-world applications. This study considers a four-echelon citrus supply chain, consisting of gardeners, distribution centers, citrus storage, and fruit market. A Mixed Integer Non-Linear Programming (MINLP) model is formulated, which seeks to minimize the total cost and maximi...متن کامل

Logistic network design is one of the most important strategic decisions in supply chain management that has recently attracted the attention of many researchers. Transportation network design is then one of the most important fields of logistic network. This study is concerned with designing a multi-stage and multi-product logistic network. At first, a mixed integer nonlinear programming model...متن کامل
Supply chain network design (SCND) problem has recently been gaining attention because an integrated management of the supply chain (SC) can reduce the unexpected/undesirable events and can affect definitely the efficiency of all the chain. A critical component of the planning activities of a manufacturing firm is the efficient design of its SC. Hence, SCND affords a sensitive platform for effi...متن کامل

Nowadays, manufacturers need to satisfy consumer demands in order to compete in the real world. This requires the efficient operation of supply chain planning. On the other hand, increasing worldwide environmental, lack of food resources and social concerns are motivating manufacturers and consumers to implement recycling strategies such as product recovery, waste management, or usage of recycl...متن کامل
A multi objective mixed integer programming model for design of a sustainable meat supply chain network
In the recent decades, rapid population growth has led to the significant increase in food demand. Food supply chain has always been one of the most important and challenging management issues. Product with short age, especially foodstuffs, is the most problematic challenges for supply chain management. These challenges are mainly due to the diversity in the number of these goods, the special n...متن کامل
