Nowadays, as the world is becoming heavily integrated, supply chains are becoming more vulnerable to disruptions such as pandemics and natural disasters. Furthermore, the mounting pressure of environmental and socio-economic problems is becoming more apparent.

These issues, coupled with the ever changing and growth of technologies, are creating new and exciting challenges for modern supply chains when the integration between physical and cyber systems, as well as resilience to unpredictable events, are becoming decisive to organizations’ operational and long-term success.

This special issue is opening for leading researchers, educators, software developers, and practitioners to discuss current issues, share ideas and experiences on the latest development in the field of Industrial System Engineering, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and Management Science.

Published Papers
  • Optimization Model in Manufacturing Scheduling for the Garment Industry
  • Abstract The garment industry in Vietnam is one of the country's strongest industries in the world. However, the production process still encounters problems regarding scheduling that does not equate to an optimal process. The paper introduces a production scheduling solution that resolves the potential delays and lateness that hinders the production process using integer programming and order allocation with a make-to-order manufacturing viewpoint. A number of constraints were considered in the model and is applied to a real case study of a factory in order to view how the tardiness and lateness would be affected which resulted in optimizing the scheduling… More

  • Flow-Shop Scheduling with Transportation Capacity and Time Consideration
  • Abstract Planning and scheduling is one of the most important activity in supply chain operation management. Over the years, there have been multiple researches regarding planning and scheduling which are applied to improve a variety of supply chains. This includes two commonly used methods which are mathematical programming models and heuristics algorithms. Flowshop manufacturing systems are seen normally in industrial environments but few have considered certain constraints such as transportation capacity and transportation time within their supply chain. A two-stage flowshop of a single processing machine and a batch processing machine are considered with their capacity and transportation time between two… More

  • Two-Stage Production Planning Under Stochastic Demand: Case Study of Fertilizer Manufacturing
  • Abstract Agriculture is a key facilitator of economic prosperity and nourishes the huge global population. To achieve sustainable agriculture, several factors should be considered, such as increasing nutrient and water efficiency and/or improving soil health and quality. Using fertilizer is one of the fastest and easiest ways to improve the quality of nutrients inland and increase the effectiveness of crop yields. Fertilizer supplies most of the necessary nutrients for plants, and it is estimated that at least 30%–50% of crop yields is attributable to commercial fertilizer nutrient inputs. Fertilizer is always a major concern in achieving sustainable and efficient agriculture. Applying… More
