This paper is framed to address the preliminary approach towards process-oriented collaborative inventory management in supply chains, taking advantage of multi-agent technology in terms of modeling and simulation. Initially, a SCM support model is proposed as a foundation to combine the supply chain processes with the multi-agent system. In succession, a(More)
Collaboration has been recognized as a significant process that holds the value creation opportunity in supply chain management. Evaluating the value of collaboration is thus necessary for developing the effective collaboration mechanisms. This paper presents the evaluation approach specifically focusing on the supply-side collaboration on inventory(More)

Keywords: Forecasting Top-down forecasting Bottom-up forecasting MA(1) process Exponential smoothing a b s t r a c t We study the relative effectiveness of top-down (TD) and bottom-up (BU) strategies for forecasting the aggregate demand in a production planning framework. The aggregate demand series is composed of several correlated subaggregate components(More)
