Variations on the integrated inventory and transportation problem
"New research in supply-chain management recognizes that an integrated plan is required that coordinates different functional specialties within a firm; however, little research has focused on synchronizing inventory and transportation decisions. This research develops models that integrate inventory and transportation decisions systems in order to optimize decision variables that have traditionally been optimized sequentially. The results offer a framework for synchronous control policies for integrated inventory and transportation systems. In addition, the research derives new theoretical contributions related to an efficient algorithm for the traveling salesman problem and route failures in fixed partition routing problems with stochastic demand"--Abstract, leaf iii.
