Procurement auctions-based framework with announcement options for resources allocation in disaster relief operations.

Availability: Ready to download

The occurrence of natural disasters is increasing especially in the last two decades, and they affect millions of people around the globe each year. The vital resources (e.g. food, water, tents, clothing, medicine, etc.) are not usually delivered to the victims of natural disasters in the right quantity and at the right time. Moreover, there is no standard method of resour The occurrence of natural disasters is increasing especially in the last two decades, and they affect millions of people around the globe each year. The vital resources (e.g. food, water, tents, clothing, medicine, etc.) are not usually delivered to the victims of natural disasters in the right quantity and at the right time. Moreover, there is no standard method of resource allocation in disaster relief operations which would overcome the detrimental consequences of a disaster. The objective of this research is to increase the understanding and knowledge of disaster relief management within the contexts of peculiarities of the disaster relief environment and inefficiency in resource allocation practices in humanitarian supply chains. The problem addressed here is the inefficiency in resource allocation for disaster relief procurement operations. This research presents a holistic, intuitive, and reconfigurable procurement auctions-based framework, which includes three phases: announcement construction, bid construction and bid evaluation. Disaster locations are considered as auctioneers (buyers) and suppliers are considered as bidders. Combining the three phases is unique in the disaster relief field, and it helps the humanitarian organizations supply the immediate and long term requirements in the disaster location more efficiently. The holistic framework is developed in a way that auctioneers and bidders compete amongst each other in multiple rounds of the procurement auction. Unique system parameters (e.g., announcement options, priority of items, bidder strategies, etc.) are introduced to represent the disaster relief environment in a practical way and to increase the efficiency of procurement auctions. The framework is verified using simulation and optimization techniques using the system characteristics of the disaster relief environment as an input.
