The problems studied were a variety of areas affecting logistics management. Examples include special inventory problems, scheduling activities, transportation and distribution problems. Reliability and maintainability models as well as assembly line problems in a stochastic environment were also considered. Finally nonlinear optimization problems were also addressed with application to facility location and design and test range instrumentation location. All of the above mentioned problems directly affect the operation of a logistics system. For example the location of supply depots is a crucial question and the work in facility design and location provides useful insights. Distribution problems and scheduling resources on scarce transportation is another problem which often faces the logistics manager. A perusal of the reports which are referenced herein indicate the variety of problems studied.
