KALENATIC, Dusko; LOPEZ BELLO, Cesar Amílcar; GONZALEZ, Leonardo José and RUEDA VELASCO, Feizar Javier. Dynamic Location Model of Intermediate nodes within safety zones in focused logistics context. Rev.fac.ing.univ. Antioquia [online]. 2011, n.59, pp. 133-144. ISSN 0120-6230.
This paper presents a mixed integer programming model for multiple logistics node location in order to support decision making processes as a function of combat units movement. The model let us to obtain a dynamic configuration for a supply network in operational logistics. With this purpose focused logistics concepts are employed as a last tendency for sustaining military operations. The model offers the possibility of use safety zones modeled as a spatial constrains which pretend to give warranties about survivability, operability, supplies continuity and flexibility in a hostile environment.
