Performance Analysis and Evaluation of Assemble-to-Order Systems with Stochastic Sequential Lead Times

  title={Performance Analysis and Evaluation of Assemble-to-Order Systems with Stochastic Sequential Lead Times},
  author={Yao Zhao and David Simchi-Levi},
  journal={Operations Research},
We consider the multiproduct and multicomponent assemble-to-order (ATO) systems where the replenishment lead times of the components are stochastic, sequential, and independent of the system state. The component inventories are either controlled by the continuous-time base-stock policies, namely, a base-stock ATO system, or by the continuous-time batchordering policies, namely, a batch-ordering ATO system. This paper develops the following results: First, for a base-stock ATO system with a… CONTINUE READING
