Title: Price and Lead Time Quotation for Contract and Spot Customers

SPEAKER: A. Baykal Hafizoglu (Ph.D. student, Arizona State Univ.; advisors: E. Gel and P. Keskinocak)


We consider dynamic price and lead time quotation for a make-to-order company with demand from contract customers as well as spot purchasers. Contract customers are offered a uniform price and lead time, and upgraded service that prioritizes their orders. Spot purchasers are subject to dynamically quoted price and lead times, which are accepted or rejected by the spot purchasers with known probability. We discuss the potential of dynamic quotation for such environments, various properties of optimal control policies and the optimal mix of contract customers and spot purchasers.
