Paper Title:
Research on the Vehicle Routing Problem with Fuzzy Demands
  Abstract

In this paper, the vehicle routing problem with fuzzy demands is considered, and a fuzzy chance constrained programming mathematical model is established based on fuzzy possibility theory. Then fuzzy simulation and differential evolution algorithm are integrated to design a hybrid intelligent algorithm to solve the fuzzy vehicle routing model. Moreover, under the target that the total driving distance of vehicles is the shortest, the influence of the decision-maker’s preference on the final objective of the problem is discussed using the method of stochastic simulation, and the rational range of the preference number is obtained.
