1. Perera, Hettige Niles. Ordering Decisions in the Presence of Retail Promotions .

Degree: 2018, University of Sydney

While behavioural ordering decisions pertaining to single-period settings have been widely examined in the literature, research on multi-period ordering decisions has been rare. This research contributes to this important field that is widely observed in the industry. The research primarily focuses on how ordering decisions are affected by the availability of retail promotion information. It also investigates the moderating effect of transit times (delivery lead times) on ordering decisions. The research is founded on a laboratory experiment containing one control group and two treatments. The participants were postgraduate students in logistics and supply chain management from Australia and Sri Lanka. This experiment uses an unknown demand distribution using real-world data. An Australian fast-moving consumer goods company provided access to sales data and demand forecasts. These figures are modified to ensure the confidentiality. A generalised linear model (GLM) was used to analyse the data gathered from the experiments. The findings highlight the importance of sharing selective information (presence of promotion) with decision makers in the presence of promotions while stressing that certain information (price discount of the promotion) might not be equally effective. Transit time is proven to have a moderating effect on ordering decisions. Findings show that researchers and practitioners need to be cautious on ordering decisions preceding promotional periods. The thesis outlines the importance of business leaders being aware of these nuances in managing information access to supply chain decision makers. For the first time, demand chasing behaviour in a multi-period setting is also observed and presented. The analysis finds that positive demand chasing occurs in the experiment for all but one tested condition. This suggests that the decision makers’ order quantities are positively correlated with the demand realisation of the most recent period.

University of Florida

2. Su, Yiqiang. Planning Models for Price Promotions in Multi-Level Supply Chains.

Degree: PhD, Industrial and Systems Engineering, 2013, University of Florida

Price promotions are playing a significant role in retail industry; however, inefficiency of price promotions has been demonstrated both in theoretical works and industrial practices. As a result, other price strategies, like every day low price (EDLP) strategies, are recommended to replace price promotions. Since there is plenty of evidence that price promotions are not replaceable from consumer's perspective, price promotions are certain to continue existing in the near future. This dissertation is going to demonstrate a number of profitable price promotion scenarios, and develop tools to help supply chain participants to increase price promotion performance and resolve potential conflicts that may occur in price promotion activities.

3. Garcia-Dastugue, Sebastian Javier. Dynamic time-based postponement: conceptual development and empirical test.

Degree: PhD, Business Administration, 2003, The Ohio State University

The purpose of this research was to present the conceptual development of dynamic time-based postponement and empirically test it in the context of short-lived products in a supply chain formed by independent firms. Postponement, the deliberate delay of activities, is used to reduce manufacturing and logistics costs while maintaining or increasing product availability. Postponement as described here is time-based because only the time when activities are performed is changed, not the design of the product, the manufacturing process, or the supply chain network. It is dynamic because it represents a method for capturing a number of managerial objectives that change within a short time horizon. The following are the major conclusions of this research: 1. Adapting inventory policies across a supply chain, from speculation to postponement, in short periods results in cost savings to the supply chain while allowing managers to comply with strategic objectives such as meeting strict customer service levels. In this research setting, implementing dynamic time-based postponement resulted in a cost savings of between 5.3 and 6.9 million annually while improving product availability from approximately 92% to 99.5%. 2. Confidentiality remains the biggest hurdle to achieve integration in the supply chain. Despite the closeness of the relationships among the members of the supply chain, there was reluctancy to share cost data. Suppliers felt they were at risk of giving away information that could be used to negotiate better deals. 3. Dynamic time-based postponement represents true implementation of collaborative replenishment because it’s a method for managing the product flow throughout the life cycle of a product across the supply chain. There are three differentiating aspects of this dissertation. First, this is supply chain management research; that is, research that views a supply chain formed by independent organizations holistically and that extends a dyad. Second, postponement is viewed as a dynamic approach based on managers’ willingness to coordinate activities beyond a single firm. Third, in this research, it is recognized that postponement can be implemented by changing the time in which activities are performed, without changing the design of the product, the manufacturing process or the supply chain network. Advisors/Committee Members: Lambert, Douglas (Advisor).
