Decomposition of Multi-Period Inventory Routing Problems Via ADP
TITLE: Decomposition of Multi-Period Inventory Routing Problems Via ADP
SPEAKER: Alejandro Toriello
We investigate the possibility of generating good solutions to multi-period inventory routing problems by solving single-period sub-problems linked by inventory levels. The inventory tailing-off effect is counterbalanced by an approximate value function obtained via sampling and data fitting. We also study the fundamental question of whether approximate value functions allow us to shorten planning horizons so that solving multi-period problems becomes computationally tractable.
This is joint work with George Nemhauser and Martin Savelsbergh.
