A Lot Sizing Game with Uncertain Demand

In Chap. 5, we presented an economic lot sizing game where several players face dynamic demand that should be satisfied while making joint orders. Joint orders can reduce total costs because fixed ordering costs can be shared among the partners. In the following sections, we will introduce an extension of the before presented ELS game: In many practical situations, demand cannot be forecasted with certainty. Thus, a model that could handle uncertainties might be an interesting new feature for the ELS game.
