Time-Dependent Order and Distribution Policies in Supply Networks

Part of the Mathematics in Industry book series (MATHINDUSTRY, volume 15)


The dynamic of a production network is modeled by a coupled system of ordinary differential delay equations. Distribution and order policies are determined by an optimization problem for maximizing the profit of the production line.
