Abstract

This paper examines an integrated model to determine strategic capacitated facility locations based on the view of distribution center management in the upstream supply chain. The model incorporates the sub-problems of service flag allocation and vehicle dispatching allocation. This paper proposes a heuristic nested genetic algorithm which minimizes the total cost while incorporating consideration of the vehicle drivers' working time limitations. Additionally, an experimental application is also applied to examine the efficiency of the proposed algorithm.
