Design Network Problem and Heuristics
A mixed-integer model based on a coupled system of differential equations is presented in order to optimize design and material distribution of production networks. Due to many binary variables arising in this model and in order to guarantee feasible solutions several starting heuristics, which provide incumbents for the branch and cut algorithm, are developed and compared.
