Adaptive Supply Chain
The US-wide supply chain consists of part suppliers, producers, distributors and retailers. The stationary (s,S) inventory policy applies throughout the whole supply chain. You can change both the order point and the order up to level of any object. Suppliers, producers, and distributors maintain the shipping service with own vehicle fleet (the fleet size is yet another parameter you can change). Retailers and distributors keep and constantly update the quality of service (essentially, average delivery time over a certain period) of, respectively, distributors and producers. Once the QoS falls below the expected level, they start searching for alternative partners.
