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