TITLE: An integrated production-distribution model with inventory considerations SPEAKER: Aly Megahed ABSTRACT: Much research has been conducted in the area of supply chain network design. Problems and challenges addressed include the location of facilities, allocation of customer demand to different facilities, multi-commodity planning, inventory accumulation, and production decisions. However, the majority of research efforts address these problems separately, or consider only two or three simultaneously. In this presentation, we present a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model that addresses the above mentioned challenges in a single model. The result is a capacitated three echelon multi-commodity dynamic production- distribution model with inventory accumulation onsideration (CTMDPI). The study was motivated by and implemented for gsf Egypt, a multinational industrial company that supplies McDonalds and many fast food restaurants in Egypt with most of their requirements.
