Production Theory for Constrained Linear Activity Models

The purpose of this paper is to generalize the framework of activity analysis discussed in Villar (2003) and obtain similar results concerning solvability. We generalize the model due to Villar (2003), without requiring any dimensional requirements on the activity matrices and by introducing a model of activity analysis in which each activity may (or may … Read more

Solution Strategies for Integrated Distribution, Production, and Routing Problems Arising in Modular Manufacturing

Recently, there has been a paradigm shift within certain supply chains towards modular manufacturing, whereby transportable modular production units can be relocated between production facilities to meet the spatial and temporal changes in the availabilities, demands, and prices of the underlying commodities. We refer to the optimal distribution, production, and storage of commodities, and the … Read more
