A Simulation Model for Evaluation of Leadtime Information Sharing in a Distribution Network

Abstract : In this study, we present a simulation model in order to study the effects of information sharing in a distribution networks containing several retailers. Two different systems have been considered; centralized and decentralized systems. Random demands accurate at retailer level and they have an identically distribution. Random leadtime between depot and suppliers is modeled as a Markov process. This model investigates the effects of leadtime information sharing by a simulation approach. Some example, presented in the last part of this paper, show the benefit of information sharing.
