Genetic Algorithm Solution for a Member Selection Problem of Supply Chain Network
This paper studies a member selection problem of a supply chain network consisting of many different projects, such as supply, manufacturing, distribution, and logistics. It first takes those different projects as a whole one, considers the principal-agent relationships among these enterprises and establishes models using the nonanalytical objective function. It also proposes a genetic algorithm to generate a relatively reasonable solution and validates it with an example.
