Faire ou faire-faire dans la conception d'une chaîne logistique : un outil d'aide à la décision

Abstract : In this thesis we are interested with make or buy decision. We considered a point of view based on supply chain optimisation flow of products within the logistic chain. Particularly, the aim is to define a tool for decision-making. Initially, and by considering a linear structure for costs we use linear programming to model the problem. Modelling is carried out in two stages: initially by supposing that the choice is related to only finished products of the company, then by supposing that the choice also concerns its components so in this case all the logistic chain of the product is considered. A decision making tool is developed on the base of this last model in order to test various networking strategies. In the second time, we generalised our model by taking into account the economies of scale in transportation costs. In this case we obtain a non-linear program for which we proposed a resolution method based on piecewise linearization of the cost function. In the third time, we proposed to validate the structure of the chain thus configured, and which take into account make or buy decision, by supposing an inventory policy with economies of scale.
