The Research of United Scheduling and Coordination in Three-Layer Supply Chain Model
With the rapid development of the global economy, more and more enterprises emphasize on the coordination with the partners to improve the supply chain competitive capability. This paper focuses on the united scheduling of the three-layer supply chain and the coordination mechanisms of agile supply chain. The objective is to minimize the total transportation cost and improve the customer’s service level, which is achieved by scheduling the jobs and delivering them to the next stage in batches. Based on the features of the optimal scheduling, a dynamic programming algorithm is proposed.
