Modeling and Optimization of Inserting Order Schedule of Agile Supply Chain
In order to solve the inserting order scheduling problem of agile supply chains which already have fixed production plans, a two stage supply chain which consists of one factory and many suppliers is studied. Take minimizing the total supply chain cost as the objective, an Integer Planning (IP) model is designed to describe the scheduling problem based on the time slot representation of corps’s available schedule periods, and a Neighbor Value Partial Interchange Simulated Annealing algorithm(NVPI-SA) is proposed to optimize the IP model. Finally, the practicality and effectiveness of the model and algorithm is verified by scheduling experiments.
