Supplier Segmentation – The Tool for Differentiation and Results
Revisiting adoption factors of Inter-organisational IS in SMEs
For over a decade large companies have turned to supply‐chain management and inter‐organisational system‐development techniques to increase their efficiency and effectiveness. Smaller companies, however, have struggled to adopt and benefit from such systems, traditionally citing reasons such as a lack of financial resources and technical capability.
Researchers’ Perspectives on Supply Chain Risk Management
Supply chain risk management (SCRM) is a nascent area emerging from a growing appreciation for supply chain risk by practitioners and by researchers. However, there is diverse perception of research in supply chain risk because these researchers have approached this area from different domains.
Outcome-Driven Supply Chains
The supply chains of tomorrow must deliver varying degrees of six outcomes — the traditional cost-related benefit plus responsiveness, security, sustainability, resilience and innovation — depending on key customers’ needs.
Long-Term Contracts Under the Threat of Supplier Default
Contracting with suppliers prone to default is an increasingly common problem in some industries, particularly automotive manufacturing. We model this phenomenon as a two-period contracting game with two identical suppliers, a single buyer, deterministic demand, and uncertain production costs.
Finanzwirtschaftliche Elemente in der Lieferkettensteuerung: erste Ueberlegungen zu einem Konzept des Supply Chain Finance
Traditional supply chain management focuses on both materials and infor- mation flow. However, considerable cost reductions can also be achieved through optimally designed financial flows within the supply chain.
Predicting the binding mode of flexible polypeptides to proteins is an important task that falls outside the domain of applicability of most small molecule and protein−protein docking tools. Here, we test the small molecule flexible ligand docking program Glide on a set of 19 non-α-helical peptides and systematically improve pose prediction accuracy by enhancing Glide sampling for flexible polypeptides

The Inventory Value of Information Sharing, Continuous Replenishment, and Vendor-Managed Inventory
In this paper, we extend the models in the literature [Lee, H.L., So, K.C., Tang, C., 2000. The value of information sharing in a two-level supply chain. Management Science 46 (5), 626-643; Raghunathan, S., Yeh, A.B., 2001. Beyond EDI: impact of continuous replenishment program (CRP) between a manufacturer and its retailers.
Supply Disruptions, Asymmetric Information, and a Backup Production Option
We study a manufacturer that faces a supplier privileged with private information about supply disruptions. We investigate how risk-management strategies of the manufacturer change and examine whether risk-management tools are more or less valuable in the presence of such asymmetric information.
Supply Chain Planning and Coordination
The aim of this chapter is to familiarize the reader with the topic of this work, how to coordinate mid-term planning in decentralized supply chains, i.e., supply chains that comprise several independent, legally separated parties with their own decision authorities.
