Mathematical modeling of environmental factors in supply chain design applied to inventory routing problem

Project: Research project

Project Details


The main objective of this project is to evaluate the environmental impact on the configuration of a supply chain as seen from a logistics problem known as the Inventory Routing Problem (IRP). The main focus of the project aims to determine the environmental impact to the IRP from two points of view: the first one is to establish which environmental factors can be included in the mathematical modeling of the IRP and how these can be modeled, the second approach consists in the development of solution methods (heuristics and metaheuristics) for the different problems posed that contemplate simple objectives (single-objective) and compound objectives (multi-objective). The final orientation of the research work aims to measure the impact of the indicators of the logistics chain configuration with respect to configuration of product delivery routes, delivery quantities and inventory management, total costs of joint policies, environmental impacts generated with the different measurement indicators.
