A System Dynamic Model of Vendor Managed Inventory and Third Party Logistics

YANG Yang,LIU Zhi-xue (School of Management,Huazhong University of Science & Technology,Wuhan 430074,China)  
This paper extends the VMI-APIOBPCS model which proposed by Towill et al to the environment of one supplier and two distributors,and builds the VMIAPIOBPCSII model.Then we introduce third party logistics in the VMI-APIOBPCSII model,and design the VMI-TPL-APIOBPCS model.Using the Spreadsheet software,we simulate these models.From the perspective of the bullwhip,the productivity of suppliers,and the inventory level,we analyze the dynamic effect of third party logistics on the vendor managed inventory in supply chains.At last,a conclusion has been drawn: the effect of vendor managed inventory and the performance of supply chain are improved dramatically.
