Reverse auctions offer the prospect of more efficiently matching suppliers and producers in the face of changing market conditions. Prior research has generally ignored the temporal and finite capacity constraints under which reverse auctioneers typically operate. In this paper, we consider the problem faced by a manufacturer (or service provider) that(More)

Dynamic supply chain practices offer the prospect of more efficiently matching suppliers and producers in the face of changing market conditions. Prior research aimed at studying dynamic supply chain formation problems has generally ignored constraints imposed by the finite capacity of manufacturers. In this paper, we consider the problem faced by a(More)
Research on the evaluation and selection of procurement bids (" winner determination ") has traditionally ignored the temporal and finite capacity constraints under which manufacturers and service providers often operate. We consider the problem faced by a firm that procures multiple key components or services from a number of possible suppliers. Bids(More)
