Linear integrated location-inventory models for service parts logistics network design
Gzara, Fatma and Nematollahi, Eissa and Daşcı, Abdullah (2013) Linear integrated location-inventory models for service parts logistics network design. [Working Paper / Technical Report] Sabanci University ID:UNSPECIFIED
We present two integrated network design and inventory control problems in service-parts logistics systems. Such models are complicated due to demand uncertainty and highly nonlinear time-based service level constraints. Exploiting unique properties of the nonlinear constraints, we provide an equivalent linear formulation under part-warehouse service requirements, and an approximate linear formulation under part service requirements. Computational results indicate the superiority of our approach over existing approaches in the literature.
