The value of VMI beyond information sharing in a single supplier multiple retailers supply chain under a non-stationary (Rn, Sn) policy

Devendra Choudhary, Ravi Shankar
2015 Omega : The International Journal of Management Science  
This study aims to determine the value of vendor-managed inventory (VMI) over independent decision making with information sharing (IS) under non-stationary stochastic demand with service-level constraints  ...  For this purpose, we utilize mixed-integer linear programming formulations to quantify the benefits that can be accrued by a supplier, multiple retailers and the system as a whole by switching from IS  ...  Acknowledgment We are grateful to the anonymous referees and editorial board for suggesting a number of improvements to an earlier draft of this paper.  ...
