Multilocation Distribution System: A Survey.
MASSACHUSETTS INST OF TECH CAMBRIDGE OPERATIONS RESEARCH CENTER
Pagination or Media Count:
The multilocation distribution problem and its terminology is described and a framework for categorizing formal models is developed. The literature on theoretical approaches to the problem is surveyed and evaluated. The theoretical results available have not in general led to practical methods of managing distribution systems. It appears that the methodology of stochastic programming under a loss function or with recourse is the appropriate formal approach to the problem and a very brief survey is included.
