Abstract We consider financing and coordinating issues in a supply chain with one supplier (she) and one manufacturer (he), where the supplier is capital-constrained and her production yield is random. Facing shortage of capital, the supplier may use two financing sources to facilitate her production: bank loan from a commercial bank, or advance payment from the manufacturer. Taking the supply chain with centralized control as a benchmark, we analyze the optimal decisions of the two members in t...

Abstract In this study, we consider two firms in a supply chain, namely an upstream firm and a downstream firm. The downstream firm sources products from the upstream firm for the further production and makes sales to the final consumers, and each firm strives to reduce carbon emissions. We find that one firm’s support on another firm to reduce carbon emissions always benefits all players in the supply chain in terms of firm profit, consumer utility, and carbon emissions reduction, compared with...

Abstract The Bullwhip Effect manifests itself in the form of an increased order and inventory variability in the uppermost nodes of the supply chain. This dynamic phenomenon is not yet well understood in closed-loop supply chain settings, despite their growing importance in modern societies pursuing circular economy opportunities. Indeed, the problem-specific literature has provided somewhat conflicting findings. To better understand the Bullwhip Effect in closed-loop systems, we obtain expressi...

Abstract This paper addresses an advance surgery scheduling problem in an operating theater composed of multiple operating rooms (ORs) and a downstream surgical intensive care unit (SICU). Uncertainties in surgery durations and postoperative length-of-stays are taken into consideration. The decisions are made on a weekly basis and consist of three parts: determining the surgical blocks to open, selecting the surgeries to be performed from a waiting list, and assigning the selected surgeries to a...

Abstract In this paper, we investigate the contract design in a multi-resource service supply chain between a first line service provider and an emergency supplier under information asymmetry. The service provider is contractually responsible for the timely repair of the assets that fail, under a given service level agreement with the asset owner. To execute a repair, the service provider needs both engineers and spare parts to replace malfunctioning parts. In case of a spare parts stock out, th...

Abstract Digital technologies for Industry 4.0, such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, big data and analytics, have attracted much attention from both researchers and practitioners. Based on information processing theory, this study intends to explore how digital technologies influence economic and environmental performance in the new era of Industry 4.0. The mediating effect of digital supply chain platforms and the moderating effect of environmental dynamism are proposed and evaluate...

Abstract This research develops the notion of operational resilience and investigates its relationship with operational efficiency under differing conditions of operational disruption. Operational resilience is conceptualized as a multi-dimensional construct, consisting of two theoretically distinct components (i.e., disruption absorption and recoverability), which are argued to have unique effects on operational efficiency under varying operational disruption conditions. The study's hypotheses ...

Abstract The use of digital manufacturing technologies (DMTs) is changing the face of the manufacturing landscape and enhancing the competitiveness of firms. However, its implementation is still a relatively unexplored phenomenon and demands attention. The purpose of this study is to determine the role played by technological context, organizational context, and environmental context of firms in the implementation of the DMTs. A hypothesized model is proposed and tested using survey-based data f...

Abstract Previous studies have been conducted on how organizational slack impact on the firms' innovation performance. However, there are few researches on how slack availability impact on the firms' innovation performance. In addition, absorptive capacity is also an important factor affecting innovation performance, but there is no literature focusing on the important role of absorptive capacity on organizational slack and firms' innovation performance. Therefore, it is necessary to combine org...
