I have chosen the Travelling salesperson problem as my typical problem.2500 words, 10 references, harvard referencing style (At least one of the selected articles should be published after 2010)REQUIREMENTSStep 1: Identify and Solve a Typical ProblemThere are a number of typical models in the Operations Research field which can be applied to a wide range ofsupply chain problems. Select one of the following typical models:• Travelling Salesperson Problem (TSP)• Multiple Traveling Salesman Problem (mTSP)• Knapsack Problem• Vehicle Routing Problems (VRP)• Job Shop Scheduling• Parallel Machine Scheduling• Christmas lunch problem• Newsvendor problem• Pickup and delivery• Travelling thief problem• Eight queens problem• Minimum Spanning Tree• Hamiltonian path problem1.1. Background:• Provide a detailed explanation of the selected problem.1.2. Model• Provide typical mathematical model of the selected problem and clearly explain different aspects of themodel (e.g. decision variable, objective function, constraints, etc.)1.3. Solving an Example• Develop a mathematical model for a workable and reasonable size of the problem.– For many typical problems, when size of the problem increases, it becomes NP-Hard. In other words,your computer will not be able to solve it mathematically. Therefore, ‘workable and reasonable size’here means that size of the selected problem should not be too small or too large.• Solve the problem in Excel and transfer your solution to Word. It is required that details and steps ofgetting the solution are provided in the Word document.• Interpret the findings and discuss.Step 2: LR on Application of Selected Typical Model in Design and Analysis of Supply Chain• Identify at least 5 peer reviewed articles in which your selected typical problem has been employed toaddress knowledge gaps in supply chain field.– At least one of the selected articles should be published after 2010.• Write a comprehensive literature review on the application of “your selected” typical model in design andanalysis of supply chain and address the following (but not limited to) points:– What type of problems in supply chain can be addressed by the selected typical problem?– Compare similarities and differences of selected articles.– Discuss the suitability of using the selected typical model in design/analysis of various supply chains.– What are the limitations of your selected typical problem?– Undertaking any additional critical and/or content analysis on the application of selected typicalproblem in design and analysis of supply chain is highly recommended.1Step 3: Summary of Findings• A summary of findings regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the selected typical problem in designand analysis of supply chain should be summarised in this section.Note:• From each article something unique should be explained in the report.• Word limit: 2500 ± 500 wordsyou are required to use the Harvard referencing system.• The naming convention for both Word and Excel files is: ‘Student Number_Student Name’. Both Wordand Excel files should be uploaded to the Canvas.
Requirements: 2500 words +- 500 words   |   .doc file
