Introduction

Nichalin S. Summerfield

  • Ph.D. Candidate in Management (Operations Management), Expected December 2010.

  • Dissertation Title: Games of Decentralized Inventory Management

  • Dissertation Advisor: Dr. Moshe Dror

  • Minor: Economics

    Research Interests:

  • Game Theory (Cooperative and Non-cooperative Game)

  • Operations Management (Supply chain and inventory management)


Games of decentralized inventory management

Games of Decentralized Inventory Management


The 1 st chapter prelim exam paper

The 1st chapter: Prelim exam paper

Influential paper:

  • Anupindi, R., Y. Bassok, E. Zemel. 2001. “A general framework for the study of decentralized distribution systems,” Manufacturing Service Oper. Management 4(3) 349-368.

    • Cited: 125 times as of today according to Google Scholar

    • This paper proposes a profit sharing mechanism that is fair if all retailers are rational and play Nash equilibrium strategy.

    • Problems: Is there a unique Nash equilibrium? Will retailers always play Nash?

      My prelim exam paper answered these problems.

  • Suakkaphong, N. and Dror, M. (2010) “Managing Decentralized Inventory and Transshipment,” TOP – Journal of the Spanish Society of Statistics and Operations Research, (in press).


The 2 nd chapter oral exam paper

The 2nd chapter: Oral exam paper

  • The setting as described in Anupindi et al. (2001) is too restricted. A minor change in the setting can change the game, the model and the result.

  • Problems: What are the settings that have been studied? Is there a general framework that can be used?

    My oral exam paper addresses these.

    • Suakkaphong, N. and Dror, M. (2010) “Stochastic Programming Framework for Decentralized Inventory with Transshipment,” (In revision)


Taxonomy of decentralized inventory games with transshipment

Taxonomy of Decentralized Inventory Games with Transshipment

The 3rd paper

Prelim exam paper


The 3 rd chapter in progress

The 3rd chapter: In progress

  • Suakkaphong, N. and Dror, M. (2010) “Biform Game: Reflection as a Stochastic Programming Problem,” (in progress)

    • Expands beyond decentralized inventory games

    • Based on another influential paper

      • Brandenburger, A., H. W. Stuart Jr. 2007. “Biform games,” Management Science 53(4) 537-549.

      • Most required mathematical modeling and numerical examples.

    • Write them down

  • What resources did you need and how did you get them?

    • Books from library

    • Journal papers from Google Scholar (MS, OR, MSOM, etc.)
