This paper presents the mathematical derivation of a new generation of the most largely used periodic review policy in supply chain: the coordinated (S, R) replenishment rule. We first derive the classical order-up-to model and then we modify it to generate the coordinated decision policy equations. We run a numerical simulation on a serial supply chain model to show differences in the two policies. We conclude on the managerial implications related to coordinated replenishment.

Abstract

This paper presents the mathematical derivation of a new generation of the most largely used periodic review policy in supply chain: the coordinated (S, R) replenishment rule. We first derive the classical order-up-to model and then we modify it to generate the coordinated decision policy equations. We run a numerical simulation on a serial supply chain model to show differences in the two policies. We conclude on the managerial implications related to coordinated replenishment.
