The bargaining approach allows a framing of both joint financing of mitigation activities before the fact and… 
Managing Supply Disruption by Horizontal Cooperation
A system consisting of two competing retailers that sell the same product in a market where the price depends on the total quantity of products on hand is considered, which shows that they should cooperate to manage supply disruption risk and design a cooperation mechanism using cooperative bargaining.
Mitigating Disruption Cascades in Supply Networks
The losses to supply chains from disasters such as the Tohuku earthquake in Japan and Thai floods in 2011 arise not only through direct damage at firms, but also from the interruption of normal
Managing Social Responsibility in Multitier Supply Chains
Problem definition: We study the management of social responsibility in a three-tier supply chain with a tier 2 supplier selling to a tier 1 supplier, in turn selling to a tier 0 buyer. The tier 2
Cost Sharing in the Prevention of Supply Chain Disruption
We examine the influence of cost-sharing mechanism on the disruption prevention investment in a supply chain with unreliable suppliers. When a supply chain faces considerable loss following a
Addendum to “Coordination of Supply Chains with Risk-Averse Agents” by Gan, Sethi, and Yan (2004)
In “Coordination of Supply Chains with Risk-Averse Agents” (POMS, Volume 13, 2004), we study the issue of coordination in supply chains involving risk-averse agents, and define a coordinating
Service outsourcing under co-opetition and information asymmetry
This paper studies the contracting for an outsourcing supply chain (a user company vs. a service provider) in the presence of co-opetition and information asymmetry to solve for the service provider’'s optimal commission decision and the user company’s optimal outsourcing decisions (outsourcing volume and price discount).

A Game-Theoretic Model to Analyze Value Creation with Simultaneous Cooperation and Competition of Supply Chain Partners
There is a rising trend in supplying chain management to employ simultaneous cooperation and competition (coopetition) among supply chain partners as an efficient strategy to create value. There


Coordination of Supply Chains with Risk-Averse Agents
The extant supply chain management literature has not addressed the issue of coordination in supply chains involving risk-averse agents. We take up this issue and begin with defining a coordinating
Securing the Containerized Supply Chain: An Economic Analysis of C-TPAT
We perform an economic analysis of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), modeling the strategic interaction between the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and trading
A Bargaining Approach to Profit Sharing in Joint Ventures
Profit-sharing arrangements in joint ventures are analyzed as a Bayesian bargaining game between two parents with incomplete information about each other's cost function for inputs provided. Using
Secure Collaborative Planning, Forecasting, and Replenishment (SCPFR)
The result is a process that permits supply-chain partners to capture all of the benefits of information-sharing and collaborative decision-making, but without disclosing their “private” demand-signal and cost information to one another.
Managing Disruption Risks in Supply Chains
There are two broad categories of risk affecting supply chain design and management: (1) risks arising from the problems of coordinating supply and demand, and (2) risks arising from disruptions to
On the Value of Mitigation and Contingency Strategies for Managing Supply Chain Disruption Risks
The study of a single-product setting in which a firm can source from two suppliers, one that is unreliable and another that is reliable but more expensive, finds that contingent rerouting is often a component of the optimal disruption-management strategy, and that it can significantly reduce the firms costs.
On the Value of a Threat Advisory System for Managing Supply Chain Disruptions
Most firms face some risk of disruption to their supply due to labor strikes, supplier bankruptcies, manufacturing quality failures, natural disasters, terrorism, or other events. In recognition of
