Lecturer:Dr. Biying Shou,City University of Hong Kong

Time:2010.5.25(Tuesday. 10:00-11:30 a.m.

Location:New Main Building A949

Organizer:Insurance and Risk Management DepartmentAbstract:

We study the competition of two supply chains with supply uncertainty. We examine the supply chain decisions at three different levels.

At the operational level, we show that retailer should order more (less)if its competing retailer has a less (more) reliable supply.

At design evel, we consider two types of contracts and characterize the optimal terms. strategic level, we show that supply chain coordination is a dominant strategy. BR>Nevertheless, supply risk is low, coordination could decrease supply chain profit, which results in a prisoner's dilemma; if supply risk is high, coordination increases supply chain profit.
