Abstract: This paper deals with an extension of the integrated production and transportation scheduling problem (PTSP) by considering multiple vehicles (PTSPm) for optimisation of supply chains. The problem reflects a real concern for industry since production and transportation subproblems are commonly addressed independently or sequentially, which leads to sub-optimal solutions. The problem includes specific capacity constraints, the short lifespan of products and the special case of the single vehicle that has alread…
