Indeed, the complexity of current supply chains suggests todecision makers in logisticsto work witha set ofef?cient (Pare- optimal) solutions, mainly to capture different economical aspects that, in general, one optimal solution related to a single objective function is not able to capture - tirely. Motivated by these reasons, we study freight transportation systems with a speci?c focus on multi-objective modelling. The goal is to provide decision m- ers with new methods and

This book is the collection of my own studies in the optimization of logistics and supply chain systems, targeted to a broad readership. In this book, first few chapters of the optimization concepts come out of the materials I used to refer while doing my research. I brought together some of these materials to form a guidance material on the fundamentals of the optimization concepts along with my own studies in the application of optimization methods. For a macro level

Industry and government are increasingly reliant on an intelligent – or ‘smart’ – and interconnected computer infrastructure, but the reality is that it is extremely difficult to provide full cyber defense and/or intrusion prevention for the smart networks that connect intelligent industrial and logistics modules, since the more intelligent the systems are, the more vulnerable they become. This book presents papers from the NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW) on Cyber Defence in Industry 4.0 Systems and Related Logistics and IT Infrastructures, held

Using techniques of optimization and operations research, this work presents the first comprehensive survey of the entire field of resource allocation, production, and distribution. Beginning with the concept of military logistics, Thore proposes an "economic logistics" that joins the elements of the supply process together into large analytic structures. The spatial, vertical, and time dimensions of this synthesis are fully examined, and lead to models of regional warehouse systems, activity analysis and networks, distribution networks, and spatial equilibrium.
