Paper Title:
Modeling and Simulation of Lean Supply Chain with the Consideration of Delivery Consolidation
  Abstract

An integrated production-inventory-delivery lean supply chain model is discussed. The model is integrated with production, supply and distribution through cost. And the delivery of purchasing and distribution is consolidated. A non-linear programming model with multivariable is proposed. The length of path and the frequency of delivery are regarded as decision-making variables. The optimal delivery path and the length of path are first solved by using improved ant colony optimization algorithm. And the optimal frequency of delivery and the batch of delivery are achieved. Last, the model is validated through an example and the result indicates the model is simple and practical. Moreover it is meaningful for practice.
