Abstract: Supply chain management is one key area that has gathered much interest from both the academic and business communities. Today's many uncertainties require that supply chains be nimble and resilient in reacting to disruptions for sustainable operations. A refinery supply chain is examined and a strategy for recovering from disruptions by heuristic rescheduling is presented. The heuristic rescheduling approach has several advantages, i.e., it requires much less time to generate near optimal schedule than total rescheduling in response to disruptions. The method will generate a number of feasible schedules so the user has the freedom to choose. The method can also provide insights for full optimization, limiting the search space based on the schedules generated. However, the method only works for the classes of disruptions considered. The approach might fail if corrective actions for two disruptions conflict each other, and the heuristics may fail to find a feasible schedule. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting (Austin, TX 11/7-12/2004).
