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. ...arXiv:2012.05387v2 fatcat:sbvvwucecjgblmwdu6rnvowpfa
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  while being a student at the Pardee RAND ...doi:10.1155/2016/1285406 fatcat:skq6ikswoba7no3ry4pbxmmzvu
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 ...doi:10.21985/n2qn1z fatcat:cse3a3jjcvbtjdri5rj2oq5jpu
