This paper reviews and classifies literature on operational control of discrete event logistics systems (DELS). Operational control manipulates the flow of items through a DELS. Each control problem addressed in the surveyed literature is classified based on the control decision that the analysis model is formulated to support. These control decisions are defined by abstract functional definitions focusing on analysis model inputs, outputs, and variables. This classification of control problems shows that fiv…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
