This paper addresses the problem of optimizing logistic processes that can be modeled as a birth-and-death process. A fuzzy decision making algorithm is proposed to assign components to orders, which is a common task in a large number of logistic processes. The dynamic assignment of components to orders is the key issue in optimizing logistic processes. This paper proposes several criteria for this optimization. These criteria are combined using weighted fuzzy aggregation in a fuzzy decision making environment. First, a simple but illustrative example shows that the proposed techniques can be applied with good results to this type of processes. Then, the proposed method is applied to a real-world logistic process at Fujitsu-Siemens Computers.
