An Inverse Optimization Approach of Vehicle Routing Problem

2022 Shanghai Jiaotong Daxue xuebao  
Generally, experienced drivers or experts do not always follow the shortest path in the last mile delivery of e-commerce. Hence, an inverse optimization approach was proposed to obtain a proper cost matrix by learning from the experts' past experience. Thus, the routing model with respect to the learned cost matrix could provide solutions as good as those given by experts. An algorithm-based multiplicative weights updates algorithm was applied to achieve the experience learning process. The
