Analysis and Algorithms for Service Parts Supply Chains by John A. Muckstadt

By John A. Muckstadt

Prone requiring components has turn into a $1.5 trillion company every year around the world, making a super incentive to control the logistics of those components successfully through making making plans and operational judgements in a rational and rigorous demeanour. This booklet offers a huge evaluation of modeling techniques and resolution methodologies for addressing carrier components stock difficulties present in high-powered expertise and aerospace purposes. the focal point during this paintings is at the administration of excessive fee, low call for cost provider elements present in multi-echelon settings.This detailed booklet, with its breadth of subject matters and mathematical remedy, starts off via first demonstrating the optimality of an order-up-to coverage [or (s-1,s)] in definite environments. This coverage is utilized in the true international and studied in the course of the textual content. the elemental mathematical development blocks for modeling and fixing functions of stochastic procedure and optimization suggestions to carrier elements administration difficulties are summarized greatly. a variety of targeted and approximate mathematical types of multi-echelon structures is constructed and utilized in perform to estimate destiny stock funding and half fix requirements.The textual content can be used in a number of classes for first-year graduate scholars or senior undergraduates, in addition to for practitioners, requiring just a heritage in stochastic approaches and optimization. it's going to function a great reference for key mathematical strategies and a advisor to modeling a number of multi-echelon carrier components making plans and operational difficulties.

Example text

In the single echelon case, the only location from which a unit could be released using a control policy was location m + 1. In the multiple echelon case, there are more “physical locations” from which a unit can be released using the control policy. These physical locations correspond to stages in the production/distribution system. In addition, there are as many “artificial locations” between successive stages. The number of these artificial locations corresponds to the maximum possible lead time between these stages.

We establish mathematical properties associated with important performance measures, develop rudimentary optimization models, and demonstrate how alternative methods can be used to find system stock levels. To demonstrate these properties and techniques we consider single location systems. The material found in Chapter 3 was originally published largely by Feeney and Sherbrooke [89], Fox and Landi [92], and Everett [80]. We present an exact analysis of a two-echelon depot-base system for repairable parts in Chapter 4.

While we can extend the ideas to cases with arbitrary demand distributions, we limit the discussion to this case to simplify notation and technical details. Demand is also independent from period to period. We assume the system operates as follows. At the beginning of each period, inventory arrives that was ordered τ periods previously. An order is then placed, if required. At the end of the period, demand occurs, and period costs are charged. We assume there are three types of costs: ordering, holding and backorder costs.
