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. The manufacturer has two options for procurement. The first procurement option is regular delivery at the beginning of the period, after the initial orders of the retailer. The next one is expedited delivery, after the updated orders are received. In this setting, our objective is to characterize the optimal policies for the retailer and the manufacturer, and assess the benefits of flexibility.

Competition of manufacturers for retailer shelf space

In this thesis, we consider two partially substitutable products sold through a twoechelon supply chain, consisting of two suppliers and one retailer. We assume a random aggregate demand that is split between the two products, so the products have separated random demand as long as both are available. In case of a stockout in one of the products, that product’s demand can spill over to the competing product, which causes a correlation between the final demand of the products and their stocking quantities.

Joint quantity flexibility under market information update
Oskay, Mine Gülden; Bakal, İsmail Serdar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2013)
In this study, we consider a decentralized supply chain consisting of a single retailer and a single manufacturer who manufacture two products in a given single period. The retailer commits to purchase an aggregate order quantity for the products at the beginning of the period before information on the market condition is revealed. Accordingly, the manufacturer then determines its initial production quantities for the products. Once market condition is revealed the retailer allocates its initial order to in...
Limited quantity flexibility in a decentralized supply chain
Karakaya, Selçuk; Bakal, İsmail Serdar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2010)
In this study, we analyze a decentralized supply chain with a single retailer and a single manufacturer where the retailer sells two products in a single period. The products offered by the retailer consist of families of closely related products, which differ from each other 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 his initial order after receiving perfect demand in...
Price competition between manufacturers selling to a common retailer under stock-out-based substitution
Kılıç, Betül Diler; Karaer, Özgen; Bakal, İsmail Serdar (2022-12-01)
© 2022 Elsevier LtdWe consider two partially substitutable products sold through a two-echelon supply chain, consisting of two manufacturers and one retailer. In case of a stock-out in one of the products, that product's demand can spill over to the competing product. We analyze the equilibrium pricing decisions of the manufacturers and ordering decision of the retailer in a three stage dynamic game for a single period. We investigate the effect of spillover rates on equilibrium decisions. We also evaluate ...
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...
