Abstract

The paper presents such mechanisms for practical coordination in supply chains that were developed in response to real industrial needs. The methods that make use of a supplier's feedback on its intentions - let these refer to the medium or the short term - coordinate supply in the weak sense, without warranting systems-wide optimality. While cost related objective is tackled on the level of planning with sufficient foresight for optimization, delivery performance is handled by scheduling where feasibility is a must. The methods can be implemented with standard planner systems using well-established communication channels. The paper reports also shortly on results of simulation studies and experiences with deployed industrial systems.
