A Study on VMI-Based Supply-Chain System by Simulation Analysis
This paper discusses performances of VMI-based supply-chain systems by using simulation. Two types of VMI system will be discussed in this paper: “Single-manager stock-driven model” and “Dual-managers schedule-driven model”. Several scenarios would be introduced and tested by using typical example models.
