One of the supply chain management active research areas is the Ecommerce-based material demand clustering. Demand clustering technique aggregates and combines the requirements with the application of a ecommerce-agent based to give a clear data of supplier requirements from the manufacturers. The analysis of material demand clustering is to offer all the manufacturers vehicle routing cost in a cost effective manner. Once the Ecommerce based agent identifies the raw material suppliers the next step is to devise a shortest route thru which the material is dispatched to all the manufacturers. In this paper we design a genetic approach to solve the shortest route and compare the solution with nearest neighbor solution and simulated annealing technique. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd.
