چکیده انگلیسی

In this paper, two models are considered which differ in terms of information completeness. The first model involves the retailer having incomplete information regarding the state of customers demand. The second model involves the retailer having full information on the state of customers demand. Step function (here called Gauss function) can be applied such as the cost for mailing letters or packages in the post office and for shipping goods in containers. Therefore, the holding and penalty costs are represented by the Gauss functions to fit in with these practical situations. In addition, we assume that customers with an order larger than a prespecified quantity (here called cutoff transaction size) are still assumed to be satisfied in an alternative way, against additional cost. Moreover, when the maximum demand is large, much more time may be required to determine the optimal solution. Thus, we adopt and modify the algorithm of the Golden Section Search Technique to determine the optimal order-up-to level S and the cutoff transaction size q systematically and provide illustrative numerical example.

مقدمه انگلیسی

Enormous quantities of information currently are being exchanged between manufactures and retailers, retailers and consumers, companies and investors, and also among parties sharing the same level of a vertical chain. The above situation is particularly true for customized products, and occurs most commonly between retailers and larger customers. Industrial retailer-customer relations recently have changed radically. Consequently, information value has recaptured the interest of academics and practitioners. A message is valuable only when it can enable a decision maker to improve their predictions regarding an uncontrollable event such as market demand (e.g. Mock, 1971). Effective resource management requires somehow measuring the costs and benefits associated with resource use. While the costs generally can be ascertained, measuring their economic worth is frequently impossible. To enhance production, these firms can attempt to acquire more timely and accurate information regarding remanufacturing yields, or alternatively can attempt, to reduce the lead times of purchased parts (e.g. Ferrer & Ketzenberg, 2004). Two main approaches have been used to incorporate information flow into inventory control and supply chains (e.g. Gavirneni, Kapuscinski, & Tayur, 1999). The first approach involves using the history of the demand process to more accurately forecast the demand distribution using Bayesian updates (e.g. Azoury, 1985 and Lovejoy, 1990). Meanwhile, the second approach involves developing new analytical models (e.g. Chen, 1998, Gavirneni et al., 1999, Hariharan and Zipkin, 1995, Zheng and Zipkin, 1990 and Zipkin, 1995). Therefore, this study is developing new analytical model and takes the point of view of the retailer and incorporates information flow between a retailer and customers. There has been considered in the literature about the holding and penalty cost function. In some of the inventory models (e.g. Chang and Lin, 1991a, Chang et al., 1996, Dekker et al., 2000, Hollier et al., 1995a, Hollier et al., 1995b, Mak and Lai, 1995a, Mak and Lai, 1995b, Wu and Tsai, 2001 and Wu et al., 2002), the holding and penalty cost functions are viewed as linear functions, that is, the holding and penalty rate are constant. In the other models (e.g. Chang and Lin, 1991b, Chen and Lin, 1989, Lin and Hwang, 1998 and Lin and Tsai, 2003), the holding cost functions are viewed as concave functions with the properties h(x) = 0 for all x ⩽ 0 and dh(x)/dx ⩾ 0 and d2h(x)/dx2 ⩽ 0 for all x ⩾ 0. The penalty cost functions are viewed as concave functions with the properties p(x) = 0 for all x ⩽ 0, and dp(x)/dx ⩾ 0 and d2p(x)/dx2 ⩽ 0 for all x ⩾ 0. In this paper, the holding and penalty cost functions are viewed as Gauss functions which are applied such as the cost for mailing letters or packages in the post office and for shipping goods in containers. In practice, many inventory systems must address sporadic demand patterns that may disrupt the inventory system. Customer orders exceeding the cutoff transaction size q units are treated as special orders to be satisfied by special direct deliveries from the factory to the customers to avoid disrupting the inventory system. Customer orders less than or equal to q units are met from stock. Subsequent papers, the inventory models of Dekker et al., 2000, Hollier et al., 1995a, Hollier et al., 1995b, Mak and Lai, 1995a and Mak and Lai, 1995b etc. considered a cutoff transaction size. Those authors offered an algorithm to determine the optimal values of reorder level s and order-up-to level S for a given q. This algorithm practically replaces the original order size distribution with a cutoff distribution, and used the algorithm of Zheng and Federgruen (1991) to obtain the optimal inventory policy. According to the completeness of information, this work considers two models: (1) Model 1: The retailer has incomplete information about the state of customers demand, namely the expected total profit of Dekker et al. (2000) is extended. (2) Model 2: The retailer has full information regarding the state of customers demand. Precise expressions are derived for the expected total profit of these two newsboy models with a cutoff transaction size and compound Poisson demand distribution (Adelson, 1966). In addition, this work establishes a new algorithm based on the Golden Section Search Technique (e.g. Haftka, Gurdal, & Kamat, 1990) for considering Gauss function to obtain the optimal order-up-to level S and the cutoff transaction size q. In the constantly changeful environment, it is worth measuring the value of information for enterprise decision making and whether enterprises will pay for information that can help them to increase profits. Thus, while information is always beneficial, this work attempted to investigate.

نتیجه گیری انگلیسی

In this article, we extend the expected total inventory cost of Dekker et al. (2000) by considering the Gauss holding and penalty cost functions to fit in with the most practical situations. In addition, we also assume that customers with an order larger than a prespecified cutoff transaction size are still assumed to be satisfied in an alternative way. Moreover, when the maximum demand is large, much more time may be required to determine the optimal solution. Thus, we adopt and modify the algorithm of the Golden Section Search Technique (1990) to determine the optimal order-up-to level S and the cutoff transaction size q systematically and provide illustrative numerical example.
