An overview of current and emerging optimization and design approaches, issues, and trends in optimization and design of supply chains, is presented. Funaki (2012) formulated a multi-echelon stock placement by guaranteed-service model with demand propagation equations through backward explosion, where demand can be either stationary or nonstationary. Gong and Yücesan(2012) use infinitesimal perturbation analysis by combining with a stochastic pproximation method to examine the multi-location transshipment problem with positive replenishment lead times. Thanh et. al. (2012) proposed a new heuristic method for the logistics network design and planning problem based on linear relaxation and difference of convex functions (DC) programming. Tsao and Sheen (2012) considered a joint multi-item replenishment policy with a credit period and weight freight costd discounts.
