Impact of decision sequence on reliability enhancement with supply disruption risks

This paper considers a supply chain that consists of a manufacturer and a supplier who faces disruption risks. The authors investigate the impact of decision sequence on the supplier’s endogenous reliability enhancement and the firms’ equilibrium pricing strategies. The supply chain reliability achieves a higher level under the supplier–leader game, but this does not always lead to a higher payoff for the supply chain. Each firm prefers to make the decision first, while any decision sequence can become dominant for the supply chain. The authors also show that the supply chain can achieve coordination via the revenue sharing contract.
