Optimal inflow control in supply systems with uncertain demands
Kerstin Lux, M.Sc., Universität Mannheim
We are concerned with optimal control strategies subject to uncertain demands. They have a broad range of applications. Taking uncertainty into account becomes more and more important in many areas. In the context of supply chain management, a need for control strategies taking these uncertainties into account naturally arises when it comes to production planning. Deviations from the demand actually realized need to be compensated, which might be very costly and should be avoided. To this end, we consider different approaches to control the produced amount at a given time to meet the stochastic demand in an optimal way. Supply chains are represented by transport equations and stochastic differential equations are used to model the uncertain demand. Finally, the approaches will be compared in a numerical simulation study.
