Abstract

Distribution network optimisation and warehouse decentralisation are two of the most significant topics in modern Supply Chains. The aim of this paper is to present a new iterative procedure, based on a linear programming model, in order to plan goods distribution inside the supply chain under critical constraints. The model, applied to batch production, defines the best delivery policies for each product's family. It provides possibilities to reach a more efficient distribution within the network and, at the same time, to optimise the warehouse use. A real application to test the model is presented as a result of this paper.
