Objective of Today’s Class Explore centralized vs. decentralized supply chains  Introduce the double marginalization phenomenon Coordinating the supply chain using buyback  contracts Briefly introduce some other commonly used  contracts Franchise Fee Revenue Sharing  Quantity Flexibility
Problem 1: Newsvendor c=0.2 How many papers should Anna stock? Price: \$ 1 100 500 = σ = μ and Demand is Normally distributed with mean μ=500 and standard deviation σ=100 The cost of a newspaper is c= \$ 0.2 and the retail price is r= \$ 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
