Modeling and optimization for disruption management
MetadataShow full item record
Disruption management is about how to deal with uncertainties in the execution period of an operational plan. While it has been successfully applied in airlines scheduling, the research of disruption management in manufacturing and logistics is still in its infancy. In this disertation, we study several dsiruption management problems in machine scheduling, production planning, supply chain coordination, and class scheduling for pilot training. We address various disruptions, propose mathematical models, and present solution schemes. This research is one of the first attempts to systematically study disruption management in manufacturing and logistics, and has both important theoritical and practical contributions.
