Decentralized Model for a Two-Stage Supply Chain with Exogenous Demand

C.R Nwozo, D Akoh

Abstract


This paper presents a formal mathematical model for managing problems of stochastic demands; confronting many industries in the society today. We consider a two- stage supply chain where the upstream manufacturer (stage2) must always fill exogenous demands from the downstream manufacturer (stage1) using  two types of expediting : Overtime production and outsourcing.

Key words: Supply chain management(SCM), Supply chain(SC), Inventory, backorder, Opti-mality.


Keywords
