Facility Location in Supply Cha

  • Meysam Alizadeh
Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


A supply chain (SC) is the network of facilities and activities that performs the function of product development, procurement of material from vendors, the movement of materials between facilities, the manufacturing of products, the distribution of finished goods to customers, and after-market support for sustainment (Mabert and Venkataramanan 1998). The supply chain not only includes the manufacturer and suppliers, but also transporters, warehouses, retailers, and customer tshemselves. Within each organization, the supply chain include, but not limited to, new product development, marketing, operations, distribution, finance, and customer service (Chopra 2003).
