Abstract

During the past decade, two relatively new application areas have attracted the attention of a growing number of researchers who specialize in applying optimization techniques to large-scale real-world problems. The now well-known areas of supply chain management and financial engineering have provided extremely rich contexts for the definition of new large-scale optimization problems, the solutions of which can provide substantial value to organizations. This paper discusses the extent to which network optimization approaches have contributed to the advancement of supply chain management and financial engineering research through an examination of past literature involving network optimization applications within these still emerging fields. © 2003 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
