Efficient dimensioning of flexibility commitments among supply chain partners

Abstract : Partners relationships are usually formalized by supply contracts wherein commitments are negotiated. The scope of this paper deals with especially flexibility commitments supposed to enable the supply chain to face demand fluctuation through a better adaptation to the market. We investigate by simulation the adequate dimensioning of flexibility rate that leads to win-win relationship between OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and its suppliers along the supply chain. To analyse the impact of flexibility rate on each partner of the supply chain, production planning model is used and depicted under rolling horizon planning principle. Simulations are carried out through telecom study case performed within developed simulation platform. Computational results illustrate how afford deciders to get better understanding of performant dimensioning of flexibility commitment in supply contract.
