Revenue and inventory management play a crucial role in the operational efficiency of food supply chains. The current study investigates dynamic pricing and inventory control policies in a two-level Food Supply Chain (FSC) of growing and deteriorating inventory that involves a rearing farm as the supplier and a retailer where these slaughtered item...

Trade-credit is an influential implementation in financial transactions. This paper proposes an inventory model for decaying items with lifetime under linked-to-order partial delay in payments. More precisely, the items are gradually deteriorating and also have a known maximum lifetime. The payment scheme is structured as follows: if the order quan...

The accurate operation of a food supply chain (FSC) is a critical issue as it directly interfaces with health and safety matters. This study addresses coordination and conflict management in a three-level FSC that embraces a new inventory type known as growing items like poultry and livestock. The chain involves a rearing farm as the supplier, a pr...

Automated ground vehicles (AGVs) are essential parts of container operations at many ports. Forming platoons—as conceptually established in trucking—may allow these vehicles to directly cater demand points such as dry ports in the hinterland. In this work, we aim to assess such AGV platoons in terms of operational efficiency and costs, considering...

While the procurement decision is generally made by individual buyers, this study investigates how a group of buyers can make a shared decision. We call this collaborative approach, co-procurement. A mathematical model is formulated for the decision of procurement from multiple suppliers. The model is solved for individual buyers. The outcome shows...

This study addresses optimal management policies for an emerging class of inventories which are known as growing items (e.g., fast-growing young animals like poultry). The paper models the inventory system of a rearing farm where newborn animals are bought, raised and finally slaughtered and quality controlled. The negative impact of overbreeding i...

Nowadays, the success of a company is dependent to the novelty of the company in developing new items. Product design and engineering are a basic phase in developing new commodities which examines the product economically and technologically. In the proposed study, “Trust” is identified as an effective factor on the life cycle of the new designed p...
Article
In this paper, a novel model for dynamic pricing and inventory control of non-instantaneously deteriorating items is proposed. To reflect the dynamic nature of the problem, the selling price is modeled as a time-dependent function of the initial selling price and the discount rate. To this end, the product is sold at the initial price value for a t...
Article
This paper discusses optimal dynamic pricing and replenishment policies for items with simultaneous deterioration of quality and physical quantity. Qualitative deterioration is assumed to be instantaneous, while physical deterioration follows non-instantaneous pattern. In order to tackle dynamic essence of the problem, selling price is defined as a...
Article
This paper provides an integrated model for dynamic pricing and inventory control of non-instantaneous deteriorating items. To tackle dynamic nature of the problem, not only the price is modeled as a time-dependent function of the initial selling price and the discount rate but also the impact of changes in price is incorporated into the demand mod...

A closed-loop supply chain (CLSC) network consists of both forward and reverse supply chains. In this paper a CLSC network is investigated that involves four echelons in a forward direction including suppliers, manufacturer, distribution center and demand market, and three echelons in a backward direction including disposal, rework and collection c...

Today, “Sustainable production” has attracted a great deal of interest by academic researchers and practitioners due to the raising environmental and social concerns. Sustainable EPQ model has been developed as a result of this interest and also necessity. This paper develops a novel sustainable EPQ (SEPQ) model under partial backordering considera...
Article
Due to the competitive nature of business, accompanied by social and environmental awareness, a great necessity to incorporate additional non-classical criteria into traditional inventory models is comprehended. Sustainable lot-sizing model is considered to be a powerful response to this necessity. In this paper a novel sustainable lot-sizing model...

Performance assessment is a critical aspect for any organization, as it provides them with the means to measure their performance. Decision makers and top management need to gain a comprehensive view of the capabilities and performance of decision making units (DMU's) in order to make efficient decisions and beneficial improvements. In this study a...

Marketing strategies and proper inventory replenishment policies are often incorporated by enterprises to stimulate demand and maximize profit. The aim of this paper is to represent an integrated model for dynamic pricing and inventory control of deteriorating items. To reflect the dynamic characteristic of the problem, the selling price is defined...

For successfully realizing cooperative driving solutions for dedicated areas, such as business parks, leisure sites, or event sites, efficient management of fleets of cooperative vehicles is crucial. This project considers the challenges at logistics and system level involved for organizations owning fleets of cooperative vehicles.

Over the last decade, platforms have emerged in numerous industries and often transformed them, which poses new challenges for transportation research. Platform providers such as Uber, Uber Freight, Blackbuck, or Lyft mostly do not have immediate control over the physical resources to move people or goods. They often operate in a multi-sided market setting, where it is crucial to design clear incentives to motivate a third-party to engage in collaboration. As a consequence, collaboration incentives become an integral part of decision support models for platform providers and they need to be developed at the operational level and applied in a dynamic way. Naturally, this involves a trade-off between the interests of platform provider, shippers and carriers. In this work, we investigate platforms in transportation and mobility, and investigate collaboration issues such incentives, service quality, different degrees of freedom for decision makers, trust, and potential fraud using optimization techniques, agent-based modeling, and game theory.
