Solving stochastic programming models in supply chain design using sampling heuristics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

We consider a supply chain design problem to provide new ways to buffer the effect of demand uncertainty when designing supply chains. The problem is formulated as a two-stage stochastic programming with fixed recourse. A special sampling procedure based on uniform experiment designs provides superior quality approximate solutions for a simple supply chain structure when demands are correlated.
