Receding Horizon Control on Large Scale Production/Distribution/Inventory Network

Mohammad Miranbeigi, Aliakbar Jalali

Abstract—Receding horizon control (RHC) has now become a standard control methodology for industrial and process systems. As supply chains can be operated sequentially, i.e.,stages update their policies in series, synchronously, In this paper, two method for locally receding horizon controllers applied to a supply chain management system consist of one plant, two warehouses ,four distribution centers and four retailers. By this implementation, As supply chains can be operated sequentially, i.e., stages update their policies in series,synchronously, each node by a decentralized receding horizon controller optimizes locally for its own policy, and communicates the most recent policy to those nodes to which it is coupled. Also a move suppression term added to cost function,that increased system robustness toward changes on demands.

Index Terms—Receding horizon control, Supply chain management, Demand, Move suppression.
