The problem we considered in our study is related with purchasing the product components from the most appropriate suppliers, at the most economical prices, producing in the most appropriate quantities, storing the produced items in the most appropriate quantities and delivering the products to the customers from the distribution centres considering the size of the defect between echelons according to supply chain network (MMDSCN). The MMDSCN system was formed with the mixed integer linear programming by LINDO. The heuristics and MMDSCN system were modelled by ARENA 4.0. Simulation experiments showed that the proposed H2 heuristic outperformed the H1 heuristic. (c) 2012 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
