Value of supplier's capacity information in a two-echelon supply chain

In traditional supply chain context, it is generally assumed that full information is available for all the parties involved. Although it seems reasonable in some settings, there are also cases where chain members are independent agents and possess different levels of information. In this study, we analyze a two-echelon, single suppher-multiple retailer supply chain in a single period setting where the capacity of the supplier is limited. Embedding the information asymmetry about the capacity of the supplier in the model, we aim to analyze the reaction of the retailers, compare it with the full information case and assess the value of information using game theoretic analysis. In our numerical studies, we explore effect of different parameters on the value of information.

Value of information through options contract under disruption risk
Kole, Huseyin; Bakal, İsmail Serdar (2017-01-01)
In this study, we consider the replenishment strategy of a buyer with two suppliers. Since its regular supplier is prone to disruptions, the buyer utilizes an options contract with a more expensive but perfectly reliable supply option. We introduce three models depending on the level of information available when the options from the reliable supplier are exercised: (i) Full information (both supply and demand information), (ii) partial information (only supply information), and (iii) no information. We der...
Capacity planning and range setting quantity flexibility contracts as a manufacturer
Pesen, Şafak; Kayalıgil, Sinan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2003)
Quantity Flexibility contract is an arrangement where parties agree upon a scheme of forming ranges on volumes for their future transactions. The contract is based on setting upper and lower limits on replenishment orders as simple multiples of point estimates updated, published and committed by the buyers. We introduce a manufacturer with a limited capacity; also capable of subcontracting, for deliveries with a known lead time. He offers a Quantity Flexibility (QF) contract to a buyer while he has an activ...
Optimization of Supply Chain Systems with Price Elasticity of Demand
Kaplan, Ugur; TÜRKAY, METİN; Karasözen, Bülent; Biegler, Lorenz T. (2011-09-01)
A centralized multiechelon, multiproduct supply chain network is presented in a multiperiod setting with products that show varying demand against price. An important consideration in such complex supply chains is to maintain system performance at high levels for varying demands that may be sensitive to product price. To examine the price-centric behavior of the customers, the concept of price elasticity of demand is addressed. The proposed approach includes many realistic features of typical supply chain s...
Joint quantity flexibility for multiple products in a decentralized supply chain
Karakaya, Selcuk; Bakal, İsmail Serdar (2013-02-01)
In this study, we analyze a decentralized supply chain with a single retailer and a single manufacturer where the retailer sells multiple products in a single period. The products differ in terms of a limited number of features only. The retailer places initial orders based on preliminary demand forecasts at the beginning of the period and has an opportunity to modify its initial order after receiving perfect demand information. However, the final orders of the retailer are constrained by its initial orders...
