Showing 3 results for Tabu Search

This paper proposes a robust model for optimizing collaborative reverse supply chains. The primary idea is to develop a collaborative framework that can achieve the best solutions in the uncertain environment. Firstly, we model the exact problem in the form of a mixed integer nonlinear programming. To regard uncertainty, the robust optimization is employed that searches for an optimum answer with nearly all possible deviations in mind. In order to allow the decision maker to vary the protection level, we used the "budget of uncertainty" approach. To solve the np-hard problem, we suggest a hybrid heuristic algorithm combining dynamic programming, ant colony optimization and tabu search. To confirm the performance of the algorithm, two validity tests are done firstly by comparing with the previously solved problems and next by solving a sample problem with more than 900 combinations of parameters and comparing the results with the nominal case. In conclusion, the results of different combinations and prices of robustness are compared and some directions for future researches are suggested finally.

First, an integer programming model is proposed to find an α-labeling for quadratic graphs. Then, a Tabu search algorithm is developed to solve large scale problems. The proposed approach can generate α-labeling for special classes of quadratic graphs, not previously reported in the literature. Then, the main theorem of the paper is presented. We show how a problem in graph theory can be modeled and solved by an integer programming model and a metaheuristic approach.

The hub location problems (HLP) constitute an important class of facility location problems that have been addressed by numerous operations researchers in recent years. HLP is a strategic problem frequently encountered in designing logistics and transportation networks. Here, we address the competitive multiple allocation HLP in a duopoly market. It is assumed that an incumbent firm (the leader) is operating an existing hub network in a market and an entrant firm (the follower) tries to enter the market by locating its own hubs aiming at capturing as much flow as possible from the leader. The customers choose one firm based on the service level (cost, time, distance, etc.) provided by the firm. We formulate the problem from the entrant firm’s point of view and propose an efficient tabu search based solution algorithm to solve it. Computational experiments show the capability of the proposed solution algorithm to obtain the optimal solutions in short computing times.
