Abstract While the construction of metafrontiers based on the union of underlying group frontiers normally yields a non-convex metaset, a large majority in the literature seems to assume that a convexification strategy leads to a reasonable convex approximation of this non-convex metafrontier. However, Kerstens, O’Donnell, and Van de Woestyne (Kerstens, K., O’Donnell, C. and Van de Woestyne, I., 2019. Metatechnology frontier and convexity: A restatement. European Journal of Operational Research,...

Abstract Reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMSs) are considered the solution of choice when variable production capacity and functionality are required. A combinational approach, which integrates the steady-state probabilities of repairable reconfigurable machine tools (RMTs) and inventory-state probabilities of buffers through an improved universal generating function, is introduced in this study to assess the compound performance indicators (CPIs) of a repairable RMS. This paper contribute...

Abstract Allocating common costs among the subsidiaries of multinational companies (MNCs) is widely conducted in practice. It is of paramount importance that optimal allocation plans can be developed. In this study, we propose an allocation method based on the arm's length principle (ALP), which is well accepted for the internal transactions between MNCs and subsidiaries. Unlike the available studies addressing efficiencies, this study considers profits in common cost allocation. We first deduce...

Abstract Shifting freight volumes from road to rail transport increases the economic performances of freight logistics. However, compared to road transport, rail transport generally lacks the flexibility in delivery quantity and frequency, and exhibits economies of scale in its shipment volume. This often leads to high inventory levels in the destination after deliveries. We generalize the tailored base-surge dual sourcing inventory model by introducing a fixed cost in rail transport, adding an ...

Abstract This paper considers algorithm selection for the berth allocation problem (BAP) under algorithm runtime limits. BAP consists in scheduling ships on berths subject to ship ready times and size constraints, for a certain objective function. For the purposes of strategic port capacity planning, BAP must be solved many times in extensive simulations, needed to account for ship traffic and handling times uncertainties, and alternative terminal designs. The algorithm selection problem (ASP) c...

Abstract This paper investigates the impact of two environmental policies: emissions abatement subsidy and emissions tax, on a three-tier supply chain where the manufacturer distributes through competitive retailers and invests in emissions abatement manufacturing technology. The government pursues social welfare maximization, while the manufacturer and retailers are profit driven. We find that the subsidy policy offers the manufacturer greater incentives to abate pollution and yields higher pro...

Abstract We consider pricing and product-bundling strategies for two competing platforms with two groups of agents, customers and sellers (independent content developers). In this paper, two such groups are required to pay the platforms fixed (subscription) fees to gain access; each platform also produces its own integrated content. We investigate the impacts of installed base, mixed bundling, and competition on the platforms’ pricing and product-bundling strategies. We find that in the presence...

Abstract We present a mean-variance analysis of the single-product, single-period newsvendor problem with two decision variables, price and stock quantity. The demand is price-dependent, multiplicative, and isoelastic, and the product sold is price-elastic. The main goal of this paper is to completely characterize a framework where most risk sensitivities can be studied and find conditions under which the unimodality of this mean-variance performance measure is guaranteed. We aim at presenting t...

Abstract We consider a procurement auction where the buying firm can manipulate the distribution of the uncertainty facing competing suppliers via reducing subjectivity in the scoring rule announced before the auction, and we examine the optimal choice of information revelation for the buyer. Specifically, we model a multi-attribute scoring auction in which the suppliers submit bids involving both price and non-price attributes and the buyer selects one supplier according to a weighted scoring s...

Abstract We study an inbound inventory routing problem concerned with the minimal-cost collection of distinct components from a network of suppliers and subsequent delivery to a manufacturing plant. We assume known and constant production of end products at the plant that generates a synchronized production of components at each supplier. The lean production philosophy motivates two distinctive features of our formulation. To facilitate standardized work, we consider inventory collection plans t...
