The overall performance of a supply-chain (SC) is influenced significantly by the decisions taken in its production-distribution (P-D) plan. A P-D plan integrates decisions in production, transport and warehousing as well as inventory management. One key issue in the performance evaluation of a Supply Network (SN) is the modeling and optimization of P-D planning problem considering its actual complexity. Based on the integration of Aggregate Production Planning and Distribution Planning, this paper firstly develops a mixed integer formulation for a twoechelon supply network considering the real-world variables and constraints. A multi-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA) is then designed for the optimization of the developed mathematical model. Finally, a real-world case study incorporating multiple products, multiple plants, multiple warehouses, multiple end-users, and multiple time periods will be considered for investigating the performance evaluation of the MOGA method against the traditional approaches of SC planning.
