Mitigating the bullwhip effect is one of crucial problems in supply chain management. In this research, centralized and decentralized model predictive control strategies are applied to control inventory positions and to reduce the bullwhip effect in a benchmark four-echelon supply chain. The supply chain under consideration is described by discrete dynamic(More)
An undesired observation known as the bullwhip effect in supply chain management leads to excessive oscillations of the inventory and order levels. This paper presents how to quantify and mitigate the bullwhip effect by introducing model predictive control (MPC) strategy into the ordering policy for a benchmark supply chain system. Instead of quantifying(More)
