Week 9 - Humanitarian and Healthcare Logistics

This week, we will be applying the facility location and vehicle routing concepts in the context of humanitarian, emergency and healthcare logistics. Extensions to these problems will be considered to include multiple service levels as well as stochastic and heterogeneous demand.

The concept of international supply chains will also be considered, as well as extending to multiple mode types. The main differences between pull- and push-based supply chains is defined.

In practice, all the above are also applicable to industrial contexts.
