Robust supplier set selection for changing product architectures
"This research work proposes an Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) based methodology for robust supplier selection by extending the robust engineering techniques to the supply chain domain. Supplier robustness, in the context of this paper, is defined a supplier ability to effectively cater to varying product architectures at minimum total component acquisition costs"--Abstract, leaf iv.
