Production-distribution planning of construction supply chain management under fuzzy random environment for large-scale construction projects

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, production-distribution planning in construction supply chain management is investigated. A bi-level model for a production-distribution planning problem under a fuzzy random environment is presented. Construction projects, the leader in the hierarchy, not only control the allocation of items to each depot but are also responsible for ordering items from the manufacturing company. The manufacturing company, the follower in the hierarchy, reacts to these orders by deciding which manufacturing plants and production lines are going to be used. The model presented in this paper is able to handle such practical issues and is solved using an improved Artificial Bee Colony algorithm based on a fuzzy random simulation. A case study is presented to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach. Conclusions and future research directions are discussed.
