Abstract

The uncertainty of demand occurs at a downstream side and spreads over an upstream side in a supply chain. To the contrary, the uncertainty of supply occurs at an upstream side and spreads over an downstream side in a supply chain. The quality of items is particularly important as a factor in the uncertainty. Imperfect quality items included in the procurement from a supplier brings the uncertainty of supply, that is, whether imperfect quality items are included or not, or how many imperfect quality items are included. An intangible loss due to the uncertainty of imperfect quality items is unavoidable even if the downstream side (taht is, a manufacrurer or retailer) prevented all imperfect quality items from being distributed to customers and society by perfect inspection. Therefore, in this paper, we consider the impact of the uncertainty of imperfect quality items in the situation that the imperfect quality items included in the procurement from the supplier are perfectly retrieved in the downstream side. In particular, the impact of the uncertainty of imperfect quality items is evaluated as an object of a monetary compensation. Hence, we propose a condition of the monetary compensation to maintain supply chain partnarship. Through some numerical examples, the condition of the monetary compensation for the uncertanty of imperfect quality items is illustrated.
