2009 European Journal of Operational Research  
Inventory models of the Arrow-Harris-Marschak type with time lag.  ...  of immediate delivery, and (iii) the cost impact of leadtime reduction can be very large.  ...  Our model is different from the above models in that it examines the problem of managing stochastic leadtimes in a periodic-review inventory model, where efforts for leadtime reduction are chosen dynamically  ...

Stochastic leadtimes in a one-warehouse, N-retailer inventory system with the warehouse not carrying stock

Adriano O. Solis, Charles P. Schmidt
2007 European Journal of Operational Research  
This study involves the introduction of stochastic leadtimes between the warehouse and retail sites, in place of the original deterministic leadtimes in an earlier reported multi-echelon inventory model  ...  The model becomes mathematically intractable, and simulation studies become appropriate.  ...  Results of that earlier study suggest that it may be better to use the deterministic leadtime model with an accurately estimated mean leadtime than a stochastic model with a poorly estimated mean leadtime  ...

Partner Selection in Supplier-Buyer Relationship with Integration of Leadtime Decisions under Demand Uncertainty Situation

Yosi A. Hidayat, Katsuhiko Takahashi, Katsumi Morikawa, Kunihiro Hamada
2014 Operations and Supply Chain Management An International Journal  
We developed a procurement decision model, which takes into account partner selection and optimal order quantity with the integration of a planned production leadtime operational decision.  ...  Leadtime is taken into account in time and cost performance to achieve on-time delivery of a supply chain (SC) system.  ...  In inventory with uncertainty, leadtime can be reduced at an added cost.  ...

A two-echelon inventory model with lost sales

Jonas Andersson, Philip Melchiors
2001 International Journal of Production Economics  
Almost all multi-echelon inventory models assume that demand not satis ed immediately can be backordered. In some situations this assumption is not realistic.  ...  For example, it may be more representative to model stockouts as lost sales when the retailers are in a competitive m a r k et and customers can easily turn to another rm when purchasing the good.  ...  Smith 11 demonstrates how t o e v aluate and nd optimal S , 1; S -policies for an inventory system with zero replenishment costs and generally distributed stochastic leadtimes.  ...

Optimal Leadtimes Planning in a Serial Production System

Linguo Gong, Ton de Kok, Jie Ding
1994 Management science  
We show that the optimal vector of planned leadtimes may be obtained efficiently by solving an equivalent serial inventory model of the type considered in Clark and Scarf (1960) , and as a corollary, we  ...  The order will not be released immediately to the next workstation prior to a predetermined delivery time, or planned leadtime.  ...  Acknowledgment: The authors would like to express their gratitude to Departmental Editor, Professor Awi Federgruen and anonymous referees for their helpful comments and suggestions.  ...
