Abstract:
ABSTRACT Weak links always represent the bottleneck of any coordination of the flows of information, materials and functions across the supply chain to achieve higher organizational performance. Since Supply Chain is a complex system that involve many other systems, integration and communication we simplified it using Design Structure Matrix (DSM) tool to ease of representing and clustering related elements. The key of success is coordinating them and better understand systems behaviors. This paper optimized DSM using Evolutionary Algorithms Genetic Algorithm with discrete problem representation for two clusters, three clusters and the dynamic number of clusters. Keywords: Design Structure Matrix, Genetic Algorithm, Particle Swarm Optimization, Supply Chain
