Ali Atashsooz; Kamran Feizi; Abolfazl Kazazi; Laya Olfat

Volume 14, Issue 41 , July 2016, Pages 39-73


  In a complex and volatile environment of the supply chain, any attempt to reduce the risks may increase or decrease other risks; thus, achieving an overall picture of the risks of supply chain and relationships between them are necessary and will lead to more effective and comprehensive strategy to response ...  Read More

Designing and Solving Multi-Objective Optimization Model for Healthcare Networks with Risk Pooling Effect Under Uncertainty: Robust Optimization Method

Behnam Vahdani

Volume 14, Issue 41 , July 2016, Pages 65-108


  In this research, a multi-objective mixed integer programming model is presented to design a healthcare network with risk pooling effect. Since the model parameters have also uncertainty, for closing the model to reality, using robust optimization approach, the model is also extended in a state of uncertainty. ...  Read More
