Design of Sustainable Supply Chains for Sustainable Cities — •Anna Nagurney — Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Supply chains provide the critical infrastructure for the production and distribution of goods and services in our Network Economy and serve as the conduits for the manufacturing, transportation, and consumption of products ranging from food, clothing, automobiles, and high technology products, to even healthcare products. Cities as major population centers serve not only as the principal demand points but also as the locations of many of the distribution and storage facilities, transportation providers, and even manufacturers. The sustainability of supply chains is, hence, a precursor to the sustainability of our cities.
In this presentation, we discuss a plethora of relevant supply chain networks for cities from food to energy ones. We provide the foundations of the methodologies in terms of variational inequality theory and projected dynamical systems theory and describe both an optimization model for sustainable supply chain network design as well as a game theory one with multiple decision-makers and frequencies of the network economic activities.
