Most planning and optimization methods in manufacturing logistics assume centralized or hierarchical decision making using monolithic models. Motivated by the increasing needs to coordinate diverse decision processes and systems, we investigate an auction-theoretic mechanism for production coordination in a supply chain. Our efforts focuses on structural(More)
Coordinating operational and logistic functions across facilities and companies is key to supply chain integration. In this paper, we consider the coordination of production and transportation scheduling, a crucial link of this integration. In manufacturing-centric industries such as automotive and electronics, costs constitute the second transportation(More)
This paper examines a bargaining theoretic approach to supply chain coordination. We first propose a one-supplier, one-buyer infinite horizon bargaining game for supply chain contracting, where the buyer negotiates the order quantity and wholesale price with a sourcing supplier. We show that in subgame perfect equilibrium, the channel coordinated optimal(More)
