Abstract

This paper presents the synchronization and control of a chaotic supply chain management system based on its mathematical model. For this purpose, active controllers are applied for the synchronization of two identical chaotic supply chain management systems. Also, linear feedback controllers are designed and added to the nonlinear supply chain management system to achieve the control of the system. In these methods, synchronization and control are established by using Lyapunov stability theory. As a result, the synchronization and control of chaotic supply chain management system are realized numerically. Computer simulations are performed to verify the robustness of proposed synchronization and control methods. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
