Optimising Supply Chain Operations Whilst Maintaining Individual AutonomyFor more information and details on this technology, email firstname.lastname@example.org
There are often conflicting commercial interests in a supply chain, even amongst partners. It may not always be possible for one partner to provide their information to another. Research being undertaken by Anu Thomas at the IITB-Monash Research Academy aims to develop models that takes into account the conflicting objectives of each part of the supply chain and the need to maintain privacy in information sharing. Traditionally, production optimisation models have been sequential in their decision making. Thomas’s research seeks to solve such large integrated problems in a decentralised manner that involves minimal information sharing and complexity.
