This book aims to help engineers, Masters students and young researchers to understand and gain a general knowledge of logistic systems optimization problems and techniques, such as system design, layout, stock management, quality management, lot-sizing or scheduling. It summarizes the evaluation and optimization methods used to solve the most frequent problems. In particular, the authors also emphasize some recent and interesting scientific developments, as well as presenting some industrial applications and some solved instances from real-life cases. Performance evaluation tools (Petri nets, the Markov process, discrete event simulation, etc.) and optimization techniques (branch-and-bound, dynamic programming, genetic algorithms, ant colony optimization, etc.) are presented first. Then, new optimization methods are presented to solve systems design problems, layout problems and buffer-sizing optimization. Forecasting methods, inventory optimization, packing problems, lot-sizing quality management and scheduling are presented with examples in the final chapters.

In a context of global competition, the optimization of logistics systems is inescapable. Logistics Systems: Design and Optimization falls within this perspective and presents twelve chapters that well illustrate the variety and the complexity of logistics activities. Each chapter is written by recognized researchers who have been commissioned to survey a specific topic or emerging area of logistics. The first chapter, by Riopel, Langevin, and Campbell, develops a framework for the entire book. It classifies logistics decisions and highlights the relevant linkages to logistics decisions. The intricacy of these linkages demonstrates how thoroughly the decisions are interrelated and underscores the complexity of managing logistics activities. Each of the chapters focus on quantitative methods for the design and optimization of logistics systems.

In a world with highly competitive markets and economic instability due to capitalization, industrial competition has increasingly intensified. In order for many industries to survive and succeed, they need to develop highly effective coordination between supply chain partners, dynamic collaborative and strategic alliance relationships, and efficient logistics and supply chain network designs. Consequently, in the past decade, there has been an explosion of interest among academic researchers and industrial practitioners in innovative supply chain and logistics models, algorithms, and coordination policies. Mathematically distinct from classical supply chain management, this emerging research area has been proven to be useful and applicable to a wide variety of industries. This book brings together recent advances in supply chain and logistics research and computational optimization that apply to a collaborative environment in the enterprise.

This thesis introduces a hybrid optimization-simulation model to locate international and regional warehouses for importer companies. The model assumes multiple products, one or two ports of entry, several geographic regions for the continental US, two international warehouses (IWH) and six regional warehouses (RWH). Demand and transit times are assumed probabilistic and several inventory control mechanisms are assumed. Certain cost based constraints for warehouse locations are included in the model. We conducted many experiments and our observation has been that the warehousing location assignments follow a branching pattern starting from the port of entry and stretching towards downstream echelons. The segments of these branches, meaning distance between Port-IWH or IWH-RWH pairs, get longer or shorter depending on the transportation cost inputs of the model. Basically, in order to minimize the overall transportation costs, the optimization model searches for a solution to balance the cost ratio between these segments. According to our model, warehousing cost and demand distribution appear to be important factors for selecting warehouse locations in the logistics network. If there are multiple potential neighboring regions, the optimization model normally chooses the low-cost region. However, when these regions are similar to each other according to the warehousing cost, the model seeks for a location which is closer to the high-demand regions.
