Abstract—The interest in supply chain management and its optimization as complex systems is rapidly growing. In this research, the interaction among different entities in the supply chain is considered where a repeated process of orders and production occur. A supply chain network consisting of multi-echelon manufacturing center and one demand center is considered. A mixed integer programming model is developed to determine production and inventory decisions across different entities supply chain. The objective here is to determine warehouse allocation places in the supply chain to have minimum inventory cost of the system.

Index Terms—supply chains, integer programming, inventory coordination & optimization
