A Periodic-Review Modeling Approach for Guaranteed Service Supply Chains

  title={A Periodic-Review Modeling Approach for Guaranteed Service Supply Chains},
  author={John M. Bossert and Sean P. Willems},
We extend the guaranteed service, supply chain modeling framework to allow for an arbitrary, integer review period or ordering frequency at each stage. We define a notation for the cyclic inventory dynamics that review periods introduce and generalize inventory-balance equations to accommodate three different periodicreview operating policies—constant base stock, constant safety stock, and adaptive base stock. As a form of validation, we apply the model to the Celanese acetic acid supply chain… CONTINUE READING
