Lee and Moshref-Javadi win 2016 ISERC Best Track Paper

Mohammad Moshref-Javadi receives the 2016 ISERC Best Track Paper award
Associate Professor Seokcheon Lee and PhD student Mohammad Moshref-Javadi received the 2016 Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE, formerly IIE) Industrial and Systems Engineering Research Conference (ISERC) Best Track Paper in the Logistics and Supply Chain Track. Their winning paper is entitled “Formulations and Valid Inequalities for Minimum Latency Problem with Split Delivery”.

2016 Best Track Paper in Logistics & Supply Chain Track

The paper considers the Minimum Latency Problem with Split Delivery. A fleet of vehicles distribute products from a depot to a set of customers. It is assumed that the demand of a customer can be fulfilled by multiple vehicles, i.e., the customer’s demand can be split among vehicles. Due to the split delivery assumption, two new latency-based objective functions are defined and two mathematical models are proposed. Valid inequalities are proposed based on theorems to enhance the performance of the mathematical models. Computational results show the effectiveness of the valid inequalities.

"This award is prestigious and I'm very happy and proud of Moshref-Javadi and his research," said Prof. Lee.

They were recognized for this award at the IIE Annual Conference and Expo May 21-24, 2016, in Anaheim, California. ISERC is part of the IIE Annual Conference and Expo, and is a forum for exchanging knowledge and discoveries in the industrial and systems engineering research community.
