A warehouse supplies N retailers. Constant external demand occurs at each retailer, and shortages are not allowed. There are linear holding costs and fixed costs for ordering at the warehouse and at… Expand

Recently there has been a flurry of research in the area of production planning for multi-echelon production-distribution systems with deterministic non-stationary demands and no capacity… Expand

In this paper, we consider two fundamental inventory models, the single-period newsvendor problem and its multiperiod extension, but under the assumption that the explicit demand distributions are not known and that the only information available is a set of independent samples drawn from the true distributions.Expand

We consider stochastic control inventory models in which the goal is to coordinate a sequence of orders of a single commodity, aiming to supply stochastically demands over a discrete finite horizon with minimum expected overall ordering, holding and backlogging costs.Expand

Deterministic inventory theory provides streamlined optimization models that attempt to capture tradeoffs in managing the flow of goods through a supply chain.Expand

We address the problem of scheduling a number of jobs on a bank of parallel machines to minimize the total weighted tardiness, under the assumption that the weight of each job is proportional to its processing time.Expand

The control of inventories of physical objects has been the theme of literally thousands of technical and trade journal articles during this century.Expand

We first introduce an auction mechanism that makes simultaneous production and transportation decisions so that the total supply chain cost is minimized and induces truth telling from the suppliers.Expand
