Abstract

The Production-Distribution Network (PDN) has obtained an increased attention during the last decades, not only through the popularity gained through Supply Chain Management (SCM), but also through the pressures globalization has put on the production efficiency. However, production and distribution are not to be investigated separately, but co-jointly in a structured manner. An area of industry, for which PDN's are increasingly important, but at the same time challenging as well as not very well-studied, is the process industry segment. This paper aims at giving a brief review of the field of some quantitative research regarding PDN as well as discusses some interesting cases within the process-industry segment.
