HW 1 (Supply Chain Coordination)

(Problem 1)

The cost for a supplier to manufacture and ship the product to the distributor is $20/unit and the cost for the distributor to handle and ship to the customer is $30/unit. Market demand/week changes by 0.5 units for every $1 change in price and is anticipated to be zero once price reaches $175 per unit. Assuming that the distributor is able to set his selling price to maximize his profit, and knowing this, the manufacturer maximizes her profit by charging the distributor $45/unit. At a purchase price of $45/unit, the distributor maximizes his profit by selling 40 units per week at $95/unit.

(a) What are the profits for each party and the total supply chain profit for the current independent manufacturer and distributor system?

(b) What if the manufacturer and the distributor integrated through a contract so that independent interests align with overall supply chain performance? Is the effort to integrate the supply chain beneficial to both parties? If yes,what is the optimal price that maximizes the integrated supply chain surplus? And show how each party would share the profits. If the expected sales volume under the optimal price is non-integer number, round it to the nearest whole number.

(Problem 2)

Read the article “Turning the supply chain into a revenue chain,” and answer the following two questions.

  • What conditions are required for generating the benefits of supply chain coordination?
  • Does the scenario in problem 1 above meet those conditions?Discuss.

"As a wife, mother, and full-time student, I was struggling to try to go back to school and take care of my responsibilities. Sometimes you just need a little help, and I appreciate all the help I have gotten from Academic Research Bureau. My papers are on-time and the writers are easy to work with. Thanks for the support!"
Rajab M.Rajab M. has saved me a lot of time. I was tired of taking the same classes many times over again. As an ESL student, my professors were taking points off of my assignments for my grammar mistakes. It made it very hard to feel encouraged to continue with my studies. Thankful for having found an answer for better grades."

As a working student, I just really don't have the time to write paper after paper and complete assignment after assignment. Working full-time and going to school was nearly impossible until I was able to feel comfortable with the writers on this site. They make me feel secure enough to trust them with my papers. While I'm busy with life, they are busy writing my papers. They always do an outstanding job!

After I ordered a dissertation from your writing service, the first paper that I was given did not met my professor’s demand. I set the paper on revision and the writer made the revision for free meeting all my requirements and I was very satisfied
