Mehdi Seifbarghy; Shima Zangeneh

Volume 16, Issue 49 , July 2018, Pages 137-198


  In the classic models of facility location, it is assumed that the selected facilities always work based on the schedule while, in the real world, facilities are always exposed to disruption risk and sometimes these disruptions have long-term effects on the supply chain network and cause a lot of problems. ...  Read More

Extension of the TOPSIS Considering the Dispersion among the Criteria of Each Alternative

Siamak Kheybari; Mostafa Kazemi

Volume 16, Issue 49 , July 2018, Pages 199-219


  TOPSIS is located in compensatory decision-making methods. The basic principle is that the chosen alternative should have the shortest distance from the positive ideal solution and the longest distance from the negative ideal solution. The existence of incremental and decreasing uniform trend in positive ...  Read More
