Logistics Systems Optimization under Competition

Description

Nowadays, optimization on logistics and supply chain systems is a crucial issue in industrial and systems engineering. Important areas of logistics and supply chain systems include transportation control, inventory management, and facility location planning. Under a competitive market environment, decision making for all these critical areas requires more sophisticated mathematical modeling and analysis. For example, the noncooperative and cooperative analytical game theory and computational based evolutionary algorithms are some popular tools in exploring logistics systems optimization problems under competition. Since many of these optimization problems are complex, new analytical models and algorithms will be needed in order to optimize the respective logistics systems under the competitive environment.

This special issue of Mathematical Problems in Engineering is devoted to publishing the latest and significant results on scientific research in logistics systems optimization under competition. This special issue puts high emphasis on the advance of optimization methods, innovative models, and analytical explorations from an industrial engineering perspective. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Game-theoretic analysis for multiechelon logistics and supply chain systems under competition
  • Mathematical modeling and optimization of logistics systems under competition
  • Evolutionary algorithms for solving logistics systems under competition
  • Cases on the applications of optimization tools for solving logistics management problems under competition
  • Systems engineering methodology for logistics systems optimization under competition
  • Sustainable logistics systems under competition
  • Closed loop supply chain and logistics systems under channel competition
  • Risk analysis of logistics systems under competition
  • Optimal control of logistics systems under competition
  • Consumer market driven logistics systems under competition
  • Optimal logistics systems for competitive mass customization programs
