Procurement Decisions in Multi-period Supply Chain


Pricing and ordering decision in multi-period supply chain environments is not explored comprehensively. We consider three pragmatic procurement scenarios where the retailer can procure products (i) by maintaining strategic inventory, (ii) in bulk in first-period and distribute them in forthcoming selling period, and (iii) without maintaining any inventory. The results suggest that conventional single period planning exhibit sub-optimal characteristics. Build-up strategic inventory is not always profitable for the retailer. The retailer can also earn more profits by employing a bulk procurement strategy.
