Management decision making under uncertainty in the Supply Chain

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Logistics performance can be affected by the presence of uncertainties in the decision making process. To reducedecision making uncertainties, a topology of sources of supply chain (SC) uncertainty is proposed, in order toidentify different types of uncertainty. A conceptual framework is developed for the analysis of decision makinguncertainty sources in SC's, providing the basis for the design and selection of improved SC scenarios. A case studyis presented to illustrate the potential of simulation techniques in modeling scenarios for the Supply Chain: a set ofperformance measures is proposed, and results are obtained based on a predetermined selection criterion.
