In this chapter we have described the state of the art in solving the Generalized Assignment Problem, as well as many extensions thereof. The approach we have taken is to generalize the GAP to a much larger class of Convex Assignment Problems, show that many of the extensions of the GAP proposed...
In this paper we consider a model for integrating transportation and inventory decisions in a three-level logistics network consisting of plants, warehouses, and retailers (or customers). Our model includes production and throughout capacity constraints, and minimizes production, holding, and...
The multi-period single-sourcing problem that we address in this paper can be used as a tool for evaluating logistics network designs in a dynamic environment. We consider the assignment of retailers to facilities, taking into account the timing, location, and size of production and inventories,...
We present a framework for solving the strategic problem of assigning retailers to facilities in a multi-period single-sourcing product environment under uncertainty in the demand from the retailers and the cost of production, inventory holding, backlogging and distribution of the product. By...
We consider a model for a serial supply chain in which production, inventory, and transportation decisions are integrated in the presence of production capacities and concave cost functions. The model we study generalizes the uncapacitated serial single-item multilevel economic lot-sizing model...
The multi-period single-sourcing problem that we address in this paper can be used as a tactical tool for evaluating logistics network designs in a dynamic environment. In particular, our objective is to find an assignment of customers to facilities, as well as the location, timing and size of...
In this paper, we propose a multiperiod single-sourcing problem (MPSSP), which takes both transportation and inventory into consideration, suitable for evaluating the performance of a logistics distribution network in a dynamic environment. We reformulate the MPSSP as a Generalized Assignment...
The Generalized Assignment Problem (GAP) is the problem of finding the minimal cost assignment of jobs to machines such that each job is assigned to exactly one machine, subject to capacity restrictions on the machines. We propose a new stochastic model for the GAP. A tight condition on this...
