On the Bullwhip Avoidance Phase: The Synchronised Supply Chain

Elena Ciancimino, Salvatore Cannella, Manfredi Bruccoleri, Jose M. Framinan
2012 European Journal of Operational Research  
The aim of this paper is to analyse the operational response of a Synchronised Supply Chain (SSC). To do so, first a new mathematical model of a SSC is presented.  ...  Both results have important consequences for the design and operation of supply chains.  ...  Acknowledgements We wish to thank the referees for insightful comments on earlier versions of the paper.  ...

On bullwhip in supply chains—historical review, present practice and expected future impact

S. Geary, S.M. Disney, D.R. Towill
2006 International Journal of Production Economics  
We offer evidence on the present "health" of a family of supply chains, and pinpoint much good practice.  ...  In this paper we have identified 10 published causes of bullwhip, all of which are capable of elimination by re-engineering the supply chain.  ...  Present Operational Status of Supply Chains Our contention is that supply chains designed to be seamless in operation should seek to avoid these on-costs arising in the first place.  ...
