In Chap. 5, we started with a very simple form of a purchasing alliance (a dynamic lot sizing problem was the basis for the ELS game). We then extended the scope to cooperative production where scarce capacities occur and transshipments can be used to allocate production in the coalition in a cost optimal way (see Chap. 7). The next step would be to widen the view for multilevel settings that appear in realistic situations in supply networks.
