MBPF1 Managing Business Process Flows: Supply Chain Management Module Managing the Supply Chain Economies of Scale (Chapter 6) Managing Flow Variability: Safety Inventory (Chapter 7) –Characteristics of Forecasts –Continuous Review System (Reorder Point Policy) –Inventory Pooling –Accurate Response (Newsvendor model) –Postponement / Delayed Differentiation
MBPF2 Demand uncertainty and forecasting Forecasts depend on –historical data –“market intelligence” Forecasts are usually (always?) wrong. A good forecast has at least 2 numbers (includes a measure of forecast error, e.g., standard deviation). Aggregate forecasts tend to be more accurate. The longer the forecast horizon, the less accurate the forecast.
MBPF3 7.2 Safety Inventory and Service Level Example 7.1 Throughput rate Order Quantity Lead time Reorder point Definitions: Cycle service level (SL) Fill rate
MBPF4 Reorder Point and Cycle Service Level MeanDemand over Leadtime Reorder Point (ROP) 1.0-(desired cycle service level) Reorder Point = Mean Demand over Leadtime + Safety Stock = LTD + I safety I safety = Z * LTD desired cycle service level SL = Prob (LTD <= ROP) Examples 7.3 & 7.4
MBPF5 The standard normal distribution F(z) F(z) z 0 Transform X = N( ) to z = N(0,1) z = (X - ) / . F(z) = Prob( N(0,1) < z) Transform back, knowing z*: X* = + z* .
MBPF6 7.4 Lead Time Variability L= Supply lead time, R=N(R R )=Demand per unit time is normally distributed with mean R and standard deviation R, Cycle service level = P(no stock out) = P(demand during lead time < ROP) = F(z*)[use tables to find z*] Safety stock Reorder pointROP = L x R + I safety Fixed replenishment lead time Example 7.8 (see data from 7.1)
MBPF7 Total variability in lead time demand = (Variability in replenishment lead time) Flow rate random Lead time fixed Flow rate constant Lead time random Example 7.9
MBPF8 Learning Objectives: safety stocks Safety stock increases (decreases) with an increase (decrease) in: demand variability or forecast error, delivery lead time for the same level of service, delivery lead time variability for the same level of service.
MBPF9 7.5 The Effect of Centralization Example 7.10
MBPF10 Concept of Centralization Physical Centralization Information Centralization Specialization Commonality Postponement
MBPF11 Learning Objectives: Centralization/pooling è Centralization reduces safety stocks (pooling) and cycle stocks (economies of scale) è Can offer better service for the same inventory investment or same service with smaller inventory investment. è Different methods to achieve pooling efficiencies: –Physical centralization,Information centralization, Specialization, Commonality, Postponement/late customization. è Cost savings are proportional to square root of # of locations pooled.
MBPF Newsvendor Problem Marginal benefit of stocking an additional unit = MB (e.g., retail price - purchase price) Marginal cost of stocking an additional unit = MC (e.g., purchase price - salvage price) Given an order quantity Q, increase it by one unit if and only if the expected benefit of being able to sell it exceeds the expected cost of having that unit left over. è At optimal Q, Q* = R + Z R Data from example 7.5
