Abstract: The resource distribution in post-disaster is an important part of emergency resource scheduling. In this paper, we first design a multi-objective optimization model for multi-period dynamic emergency resource scheduling (ERS) problems. Then, using the framework of multi-objective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition (MOEA/D), an MOEA is proposed to solve this model. In the proposed algorithm, new evolutionary operators are designed with the intrinsic properties of multi-period dynamic ERS problems in mind. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can get a set of better candidate solutions than the non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm II (NSGA-II).
