Abstract

A set of neural networks is employed to develop control policies that are better than fixed, theoretically optimal policies, when applied to a combined physical inventory and distribution system in a nonstationary demand environment. Specifically, we show that model-based adaptive critic approximate dynamic programming techniques can be used with systems characterized by discrete valued states and controls. The control policies embodied by the trained neural networks outperformed the best, fixed policies (found by either linear programming or genetic algorithms) in a high-penalty cost environment with time-varying demand.
