An Interval Programming Approach for an Operational Transportation Planning Problem
Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems
Springer International Publishing
This paper deals with an interval programming approach for an operational transportation problem, arising in a typical agricultural cooperative during the crop harvest time. More specifically, an interval programming model with uncertain coefficients occurred in the right-hand side and the objective function is developed for a single-period multi-trip planning of a heterogeneous fleet of vehicles, while satisfying the stochastic seed storage requests, represented as interval numbers. The proposed single-period interval programming model is conceived and implemented for a real life agricultural cooperative case study.
