This study addresses the problem of locating distribution centers in a single-echelon, capacitated distribution network. Such network consists of several potential distribution centers and various demand points dispersed in different regional markets. The distribution operations of this network generate massive amounts of data. The problem is how t...

This paper studies the dynamic behavior of the interaction between sustainable supply chains and environment. Environmental impact exists at each stage throughout supply chains such as resource extraction, production, distribution, repairs, and waste disposal, among others. As market and competition constantly change over time, however, supply chai...

The amount of data produced and communicated over the Internet is significantly increasing, thereby creating challenges for the organizations that would like to reap the benefits from analyzing this massive influx of big data. This is because big data can provide unique insights into, inter alia, market trends, customer buying patterns, and mainten...
Article
An integrated scheduling problem of supply and distribution operations in a make-to-order supply chain is considered. The supply chain consists of contracted suppliers, capacitated processing centers, and many demand points. Processing centers customize and/or configure semi-finished products supplied by suppliers to finished products in terms of t...

... According to reference [10], the effectiveness of industryeducation integration is determined by the breadth, depth, and intensity of cooperation between education and industry at the joint point. The foothold of new engineering discipline construction, according to reference [11], is active docking and meeting the needs of industries and industries, and the main goal of new engineering discipline construction is to cultivate a group of excellent engineering scientific and technological talents with innovative and entrepreneurial ability, dynamic adaptability, and high quality. According to reference [12], the IPE should be more than just an educational system; it should also be an integral part of the economic and industrial systems. ...
... This data has useful hidden information, which makes it a valuable asset for any organisation (Sivarajah et al. 2017). BDA, on the other hand, involves the ability to gain insights from data by applying statistics, mathematics, econometrics, simulations, optimisations, or other techniques to help supply chain businesses to gain better understanding of the hidden value of BD and make better decisions (Sivarajah et al. 2017;Wang, Gunasekaran, et al. 2018;Dubey et al. 2020) as its business value is not yet achieved (Mikalef et al. 2020). ...
... They report that big data enhance business decisions by infusing intelligence into the analysis. Other studies on using big data analytics include supply chain agility, sustainability, and resilience (Wang et al. 2016). Lotfi et al.

... GAP literatürü ele alınan amaç fonksiyonları yönünden incelendiğinde önemli bir kısmının problemin klasik amaç fonksiyonu olan toplam yükü/maliyeti/kazancı (örneğin; [1][2][3]) ele aldığı görülmektedir. Az sayıda çalışma çok amaçlı yapıdadır [4][5][6]. GAP'ın çözümünde dal-sınır algoritması [7][8][9], dal-fiyat algoritması [4], dal-kesme algoritması [10,11] ve gürbüz optimizasyon [12] gibi kesin çözüm yöntemleri, genetik algoritma [13][14][15], komşu arama [16], diferansiyel gelişim algoritması [17,18] ...
... Sustainability in SCs has received considerable attention by practitioners and scholars over the last two decades (He et al., 2021). "While conventional SCs consider economic dimension and address factors such as costs decrease, production time reduction and on time delivery decrease of products, sustainable SCs (SSCs) deal with environmental and social dimensions in response to customers' needs (Wang & Gunasekaran, 2017)". In today's highly competitive markets, environmental and social dimensions should be given as equal importance as economic dimension Shadab et al., 2021). ...
