Application  of Genetic Algorithms in Inventory Management

Abstract: Inventory cost is a main component of total logistic costs. To achieve the minimum logistic costs, companies need to manage the amount of carrying inventory accurately to minimize the impact of the fluctation of demand. In order to deal with the fluctuation of the demand that creates a mismatch between supply and demand, Genetic Algorithms are applied to define the optimal solution based on periodic review system. Genetic Algorithms as one of the optimization method are chosen because it can handle the problem with highly constrained, multi criteria, multi combinatorial problem and has large solution. There are several steps that need to be accomplished to achieve the objective. First, mathematic model of inventory management which contain of all cost component need to be determined. Second, based on the proposed mathematic model, Genetic Algorithms as the optimization method is developed. Finally, the result of Genetic Algorithms is applied in real case study which is case in one of biscuits companies in Indonesia.

    Performing a site survey can help an organization save valuable time, money and resources. As a result of the intelligence gathered through a site survey, project managers can make better informed decisions; reducing the likelihood that costly errors are made in the execution phase of your project.

    When should a site survey be performed?
    New Construction or Upgrades to Physical Structures
    Before blueprints are finalized for a structure, engineers need to know that the location is suitable for building. An engineer performing a site survey would seek to answer questions like:

    What is the slope of the terrain?
    Is there road access?
    What is underneath the area where the foundation will be laid? Can it support the planned foundation?
    Are there trees or other landscaping objects that need to be removed or accounted for prior to construction?
    Are there any aerial obstructions? (i.e. Power Lines, Branches, Neighboring Structures)
    By answering these questions, hopefully the team drafting the blueprints can coordinate with the construction team to reduce the number of expensive and time-consuming revisions need to complete a project.

  7. This information is priceless. How can I find out more?|
