Thesis Topic:

Competitive Bidding in Supply Chains

Thesis Description:

Competition is pervasive in supply chains. My thesis is primarily concerned with the suppliers' competitive behaviour when they bid for a buyer's purchase business. A variety of factors are taken into account in the thesis: ex post subcontracting, ex ante single-sourcing commitment, capacity reservation, and incomplete information, etc. A closer look at how suppliers compete with each other will deepen our understanding of a firm's procurement strategy, and hence helps a buyer make a better sourcing decision.

Professor Eddie Anderson is the principle supervisor and Dr Erick Li is the associate supervisor.
