AbstractThe demand variability on stocking policies and incentives to forecast in inventory-based contracts with respect to a manufacturer-retailer channel are discussed. Price-only contracts and buyback contracts are the two types considered in the survey. In price-only contract the manufacturer produces the product and sells it to retailer who inturn sells it to the customer. In case of buyback contracts the retailer has the facility to return the unsold goods to the manufacturer for a partial refund. The survey deals with the link between actual demand and optimal order quantity and reflects to the incentive problem that maybeset information sharing in supply chains.
