Optimal expediting decisions in a continuous-stage serial supply chain 

Date: 02/2011 Author(s): Berling, P.; Martínez de Albéniz, Victor Document type: Working Paper In this paper, we analyze expediting decisions in a continuous-time, continuous-stage serial supply chain facing a Poisson demand process. For each unit in the chain, one must decide at which speed it should be moved downstream, given the state of the system, so as to minimize total supply chain costs. We decompose the problem into a set of one-dimensional ... More information

A characterization of optimal base-stock levels for a continuous-stage serial supply chain

Observing that in such continuous system it is never optimal to let orders cross, we decompose the general problem into a set of single-unit sub-problems that can be solved in a sequential fashion. When shipping and inventory ... More information
