Optimization and Logistics Challenges in the Enterprise
This book aims to bridge the gap between operations research and mathematical optimization research from the academic arena with industrial practice. The scope of much of the research in this book was suggested by contributors’ industrial partners. Several topics are covered, including:
• Enterprise-Wide Optimization,
• Transportation & Logistics,
• Distribution Networks,
• Operation and Process Scheduling,
• Planning & Long Term Investment,
• Optimization Under Uncertainty,
• Advances in Optimization Models and Algorithms.
The book is motivated by the need to answer an emerging question from industry: "How do we go from mathematical modeling and optimization techniques to practical solutions for problems arising in the enterprise’s operations?” The answer to this question will revolutionize research in optimization and logistics, as well as real business operations in the enterprise. This book makes a necessary step towards providing the answer to this question.
