Optimization algorithms are search methods where the goal is to find an optimal solution to a problem, in order to satisfy one or more objective functions, possibly subject to a set of constraints. Studies of social animals and social insects have resulted in a number of computational models of swarm intelligence. Within these swarms their collective(More)
The proposed novel Genetic Bees Algorithm (GBA) is an enhancement to the swarm-based Bees Algorithm (BA). It is called the Genetic Bees Algorithm because it has genetic operators. The structure of the GBA compared to the basic BA has two extra components namely, a Reinforced Global Search and a Jumping Function. The main advantage of adding the genetic(More)
A supply chain is a complex network which involves the products, services and information flows between suppliers and customers. A typical supply chain is composed of different levels, hence, there is a need to optimize the supply chain by finding the optimum configuration of the network in order to get a good compromise between the multi-objectives such as(More)
In this paper, an enhanced version of the Bees Algorithm is proposed in dealing with multi-objective supply chain model to find the optimum configuration of a given supply chain problem in order to minimise the total cost and the total lead-time. The new Bees Algorithm includes an adaptive neighbourhood size change and site abandonment (ANSSA) strategy(More)

In this paper, a literature review of the mathematical models for supply chain design is proposed. The research is based on the study and analysis of publications of the last twelve years from the most widespread international journal about operations management and logistics. The aim of the work lies in identifying tendencies in the literature and related(More)
The configuration of the supply chain is one of the main challenges faced by organizations operating in young, dynamic industries characterized for the use of new materials and technological innovations. In composites materials, a young developing industry, there is not a neither standard manufacturing process, nor are there standardized materials with(More)
