Optimal Mechanisms to Match Supply and Demand in Contemporary Supply Chains (OPTCHAIN)

2016-2-07
Merzifonluoğlu, Yasemin
Emerging production and information technologies have increased competition and consumer expectations, this leads to ever-shrinking product life cycles, volatile and unpredictable markets. In addition, natural disasters, accidents, supply disruptions increased the risk in today’s global and long supply chains. Keeping costs down and customers satisfied in a global marketplace requires companies to proactively manage supply and demand using state of art techniques, technologies and practices. This proposal describes a research program for building novel optimization models and efficient solution mechanisms that enable contemporary supply chains to optimally match demand and supply through demand management and sourcing decisions. The resulting modeling, analysis, and algorithmic development will also contribute advances in applied optimization theory and large-scale problem solving.

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...
Robust optimization of risk-aware, resilient and sustainable closed-loop supply chain network design with Lagrange relaxation and fix-and-optimize
Lotfi, Reza; Sheikhi, Zohre; Amra, Mohsen; AliBakhshi, Mehdi; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm (2021-12-01)
This study explores a Robust, Risk-aware, Resilient, and Sustainable Closed-Loop Supply Chain Network Design (3RSCLSCND) to tackle demand fluctuation like COVID-19 pandemic. A two-stage robust stochastic multiobjective programming model serves to express the proposed problems in formulae. The objective functions include minimising costs, CO2 emissions, energy consumption, and maximising employment by applying Conditional Value at Risk (CVaR) to achieve reliability through risk reduction. The Entropic Value ...
The Impact of supply base complexity on firm performance
Memiş, Huriye; Akın Ateş, Melek.; Department of Business Administration (2019)
Supply chain complexity has become a significant concern of the companies especially in the past decade. As a response to this, there have been several studies examining supply chain complexity and performance implications. However, studies focusing on upstream supply chain complexity is rather scant. Sources of supply base complexity and their impacts on firm performance is still under-investigated. The aim of this research is to investigate the impact of supply base complexity on firm performance. Supply ...
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...
Assessing Information Technology Use in Organizations: Developing a Framework
Sezgin, Emre; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi (2011-10-07)
Increasing use of current and developing information technologies (IT) within business and production processes is a required transformation to survive in the market. However. IT should be well-managed to be adapted by an organization as a whole. This study proposes a new model for the assessment of IT use in organizations. The aim is to assist decision making processes in information technology management through exploring strength and weaknesses of organization on IT tools and applications. The model has ...
