An Intelligent Approach for Optimizing Supply Chain Operations

H. C. W. Lau, L. Zhao, and Dilupa Nakandala

Abstract—This paper aims to provide a model of supply chain management covering the principles of fuzzy logic for assessing performance of suppliers based on several pre-determined benchmarking metrics. Most important of all, it paves the way to extend this approach to tackle the issue of trans-shipment optimization where the stochastic nature of customer demand and supplier lead-time is taken into account.

Index Terms—Fuzzy logic, logistic management, trans-shipment cost.
