Supply Chain Management and Logistics Research at SystemsLab

Typical supply chain systems consist of customers, retailers, distributors, warehouses, production facilities, and suppliers that can be represented as nodes in a highly integrated network. An efficient supply chain integrates activities such as product design, demand forecasting, production/sourcing, production planning and scheduling, warehousing, transportation, fulfillment of orders and customer service in a concise manner.

These activities have effects on two performance indicators of supply chains: economic and environmental.



Research Interests:
  • Discrete-Continuous Optimization Models and Algorithms for Multi-Echelon Supply Chains
  • Environmentally Conscious Supply Chain Management
  • Sustainability in Supply Chain Management and Logistics
  • Transportation Planning and Scheduling
  • Inter-Modal Logistics
