A heuristic approach to the multi-period single-sourcing problem with production and inventory capacities and perishability constraints

Abstract:

The multi-period single-sourcing problem that we address in this paper can be used as a tool for evaluating logistics network designs in a dynamic environment. We consider the assignment of retailers to facilities, taking into account the timing, location, and size of production and inventories, in the presence of various types of constraints. We formulate the problem as a nonlinear assignment problem, and develop efficient algorithms for solving the capacitated lot-sizing subproblems that fo...
