    Deterministic Dynamic Distribution Network Design within an Open Distribution Web: a Tabu Search Based Metaheuristic

    • Helia Sohrabi, presenter, Université Laval
    • Nicolas Zufferey, University of Geneva
    • Benoît Montreuil, Université Laval

    In an open distribution web context, distribution networks are dynamically designed through selecting open distribution facilities and how products are to be deployed amongst them. We propose solving the deterministic version of this design optimization problem by a tabu search metaheuristics initialized through greedy heuristics and supported by linear optimization.

    Market Deployment Roadmap Optimization Model

    • Salman Kimiagari, presenter, TRU

    In today’s global economy, entrepreneurs tend ever more to holistically design their business ventures in early stages of business creation. Embedded in the business design process, we introduce an optimization model for market deployment roadmap planning. A case study demonstrates model usage for selecting markets at each business development phase.

    Simulation and Analysis of a Physical Internet Network through Multi-Agent Systems

    • Pedro Furtado, presenter, Polytechnique Montréal

    This presentation shows a multi-agent simulation of a physical Internet network between Québec City and New York, by considering different scenarios and measuring its benefits compared to the traditional transport system.
