Stochastic Programming and Distributionally Robust Optimization Approaches for Location and Inventory Prepositioning of Disaster Relief Supplies [article]

Karmel S. Shehadeh, Emily L. Tucker
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we study the problem of disaster relief inventory prepositioning under uncertainty.  ...  Specifically, we aim to determine where to open warehouses and how much relief item inventory to preposition in each, pre-disaster.  ...  Table 1 summarizes relevant and recent studies that use stochastic optimization for inventory prepositioning and delivery of disaster relief supplies.  ...

Determining Reliable Networks of Prepositioning Materiel Warehouses for Public-Sector Rapid Response Supplies

Thomas E. Lang, Ronald G. McGarvey
2016 Advances in Operations Research  
A particular challenge to the development of networks of prepositioning warehouses is that the warehouses themselves may be impacted by the very disruptions that drive demands for prepositioned materials  ...  Events such as natural disasters or combat operations require a rapid response capability from humanitarian service providers and military organizations.  ...  Acknowledgments RAND Project Air Force provided financial support for this research, which was performed as part of the first author's Ph.D. dissertation [24] while being a student at the Pardee RAND  ...

Operations Research Techniques in Data Limited Environments: Applications in Public Services

Kezban Yagci Sokat
2017 unpublished
Inspired by Chapter 4, Chapter 5 presents a framework for dealing with incomplete information of road networks using machine and statistical learning methods.  ...  However, as such decision making tools emerge in the IEMS literature, most models assume the availability of data while there is often limited and unreliable data for many public services.  ...  Acknowledgement This work has been in part funded by the National Science Foundation, Grant CMMI-1265786: "Advancing Dynamic Relief Response: Integration of New Data Streams and Routing Models" and accompanying  ...
