Top Journals for High Impact Research

Decision-making in supply chains is challenged by high complexity, a combination of continuous and discrete processes, integrated and interdependent operations, dynamics, and adaptability. The rapidly increasing data availability, computing power and intelligent algorithms unveil new potentials in adaptive data-driven decision-making.

Little is known about the relationship between the accuracy of a discrete-event simulation model and its complexity. Despite this, authors propose that increasing model complexity leads to improved accuracy with diminishing returns. In this paper we explore whether this proposition is correct by applying successive simplifications, some in different sequences, to three simulation models and measuring the impact on the accuracy of the model output.

A method is presented for obtaining topology optimized designs for internally cooled high temperature applications, using a flexible geometry description, by means of a voxelization methodology and a novel boundary detection algorithm. A conjugate heat transfer approach is taken; the physics is described by a Stokes–Brinkman model for the flow, weakly coupled with a convection–diffusion model for the heat transfer.

Consumer goods supply chains are intensifying their efforts to develop and offer green products, in order to seize new business opportunities and improve profitability. A specific type of green products concerns marginal and development cost-intensive green products (MDIGPs), like electric vehicles. As greening these products affects both marginal and development costs, their design presents special challenges, especially within the context of uncertain demand.
