Mitigating Uncertainties in Dynamic Logistic & Supply Chain Models: Optimisation Approach

Current project

Additional projects can be negotiated with SEIT supervisors who work in a related field.

Click on this link to see a spreadsheet containing a list of supervisors in SEIT and their respective research areas. Please contact the supervisors directly to negotiate a project.

We also offer research projects for Masters by Research and Master of Philosophy degrees.

All admission enquires for SEIT research degree students (e.g. Phd, Masters, MPhil) can be directed to:


Supply chain management is important for companies and organisations to improve their business and enhance competitiveness in the global marketplace. A manufacturer–retailer system which operates under an agreed coordinated policy needs to be considered, with an imperfect production process and a possibility of having demand fluctuation at the retailer’s end.  To do this, a mathematical model should be developed for a single fluctuation, either for increasing or decreasing demand rate. Later on, along with uncertain production rate (i.e., faster and slower) and varied demand patter (increase or decrease), four different matrices can be considered for that two-stage manufacturer–retailer system. To solve the proposed model, advanced operations research-based optimisation approaches should be considered.


Contact Dr Ripon Chakrabortty for further information. Each potential student need to write a research proposal highlighting research motivation, research problems, research objectives, brief review of the most relevant literature, proposed methodology and expected outcome.
