This paper proposes an auction-based multilateral negotiation mechanism for collaborative integrated Due Date Management decision making. We assume a specific supply chain setting, in which a supplier supplies a group of customers. Due to limited production capacity within a scheduling time window (e.g. a season of the year), not all customers' due date requirements can be accommodated. This competition for the use of production resources among self-interested customers poses a strategic

To make the resource allocation efficient, we present an iterative auction framework to coordinate the allocation process and to align customers' self-interests with the overall system performance. Our purpose is to provide a decentralized decision support tool which enables the integration of key due date management decisions. I.
