09H00 (Anfit. E.1) - Decision Problems within a SC,
A Supply Chain represents a network of organizations involved in the different processes and activities that produce value in the form of products and services. Supply Chain Management is the task of integrating organizational units within the network and coordinating material, information and financial flows in order to fulfill customer demands with the aim of improving competitiveness and reducing (internal and external) costs. In order to achieve these goals, one has to analyze and solve at different levels decision problems (strategic, mid-term, tactical), whose characteristics and ingredients of these problems depend on various factors (complexity, objectives, constraints). Most of these problems are intrinsically multi-objective and then they should be addressed through appropriate techniques. Through some examples we illustrate the typical framework of a multi-attribute approach, useful for practical decision problems.
