Abstract

This paper presents a developed multi-criteria optimization model aims to obtain a cost-effective design for a meat supply chain network with respect to minimization of total implementation and operational cost and maximization of customer satisfaction and product quality. Moreover, this work solves the facility location-allocation problem. Two solution approaches were employed to obtain two sets of Pareto solutions and a decision-making algorithm was used to select the superior solution approach in terms of values of the three criteria. A case study was applied to examine the applicability of the developed model and the performance of the proposed solution approaches. Results proved the applicability of the developed model in obtaining a trade-off among the considered criteria and solve the meat supply chain network design problem. The developed tricriterion optimization model can be used by decision makers of food supply chains to design and optimize their chains.
