Nowadays the application of Supply Chain network design is
increasing in most of the Industry in Bangladesh. But it is
sometimes to be more complex to take the proper decision about
where facilities should be located, how much capacity should be
located to each facility because it is conflicting between cost and
responsiveness. A profit maximizing supply chain network design
model is presented in which all market demand is satisfied within
the lead time as well as responsive supply chain is followed
though some demand including high cost are to be fulfilled. Mixed
Integer Linear Programming (MILP) approach is applied to this
network to realize the design effectively. In this study new
facilitates is to be selected at a proper location and
correspondingly of its mode of transportation based on
transportation cost for maximizing the profit.
Keywords: Supply Chain network design, Mixed Integer Linear Programming
and mode of transportation.
