Nervousness and Reorder Policies in Rolling Horizon Environments
In this paper measures for characterizing planning stability in material-coordination systems are described and applied to analyze the stability performance of (s, nQ)- and (s, S)-policies for a single-stage system simulated in a rolling horizon environment. Introducing a stabilization parameter into reorder-point lot-sizing policies a method to improve planning stability is proposed and compared to the efficiency of the stabilization method when freezing a part of each planning cycle.
