Controlling inventories in a supply chain: a case study
AbstractThis article studies specific aspects of the joint replenishment problem in a real supply chain setting. Particularly we analyze the effect on inventory performance of having minimum order quantities for the different products in the joint order, given a complex transportation cost structure. The policies suggested have been tested in a simulation model with real data.
