Abstract
This thesis introduces and studies different problems in the blood supply chain. The problems are focused on aspects less frequently studied in the literature such as the exploitation of the different collection and production alternatives, consideration of multiple products and uncertainty in demand and supply. These important features can be found in different decision levels, including daily collections, annual planning and at the strategic level when the blood supply chain is designed. For each problem presented, a suitable solution strategy is proposed. Different methods such as discrete event simulation, Monte Carlo simulation, optimisation, stochastic opt...
