A Fuzzy Credibility-Based Chance-Constrained Optimization Model for Multiple-Objective Aggregate Production Planning in a Supply Chain under an Uncertain Environment
Keywords:aggregate production planning, supply chain, credibility, chance-constrained modelling, fuzzy multiple-objective optimization, weight-consistent solution
In this study, a Multiple-Objective Aggregate Production Planning (MOAPP) problem in a supply chain under an uncertain environment is developed. The proposed model considers simultaneously four different conflicting objective functions. To solve the proposed Fuzzy Multiple-Objective Mixed Integer Linear Programming (FMOMILP) model, a hybrid approach has been developed by combining Fuzzy Credibility-based Chance-constrained Programming (FCCP) and Fuzzy Multiple-Objective Programming (FMOP). The FCCP can provide a credibility measure that indicates how much confidence the decision-makers may have in the obtained optimal solutions. In addition, the FMOP, which integrates an aggregation function and a weight-consistent constraint, is capable of handling many issues in making decisions under multiple objectives. The consistency of the ranking of objective’s important weight and satisfaction level is ensured by the weight-consistent constraint. Various compromised solutions, including balanced and unbalanced ones, can be found by using the aggregation function. This methodology offers the decision makers different alternatives to evaluate against conflicting objectives. A case experiment is then given to demonstrate the validity and effectiveness of the proposed formulation model and solution approach. The obtained outcomes can assist to satisfy the decision-makers’ aspiration, as well as provide more alternative strategy selections based on their preferences.
