DE.LO.S.: A DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR SOLVING SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS

 

Yannis Marinakis, Magdalene Marinaki

 

Abstract

 

In this paper a Decision Support System (DSS), called De.Lo.S. (Decisions in Logistics and Supply Chain Management) is introduced, which is designed for assisting in the integral control of the logistic activities in a firm. De.Lo.S. has the possibility of solving either a logistic problem, such as Vehicle Routing Problem, Inventory Control Problem, Location Problem, etc., separately, or to combine some or all of these problems for an integrated solution. De.Lo.S. consists firstly of a Graphical User Interface that allows the effective interaction between the system and the user, secondly of a data base that stores all the necessary information needed for the DSS, and thirdly of a model base that contains the models and the algorithms needed in order to provide the suitable solution.
