Team develops computational strategies for optimal planning of inventory and distribution of industrial gases

February 1, 2011

Developing effective strategies for optimizing industrial gas distribution systems raises numerous challenges; short-term distribution planning decisions must be balanced with long-term inventory decisions. In addition, uncertainties arising from demand fluctuations and the losses or gains of customers in the distribution network may significantly affect the decision-making across the industrial gas supply chains.
