The healthcare supply system is a complex hierarchical network, involving multiple, conflicting objectives and unstructured collaborative processes, with problems that are in general rather complex given their combinatorial nature.
This research project aims at defining a framework for supporting modeling and management of healthcare services, and at designing tools for tactical and operational decision-making in these services, including stocking policies, distribution management or route planning.
To tackle the multiple emerging logistic problems in the area, multi-objective hybrid approaches will be designed, putting together mathematical programming and optimization models along with advanced meta-heuristic techniques.
