- This study employs strategic game approach along with multistage simulation to find a supply chain plan in an equilibrium state, in which the configuration design stage and the production dispatching stage hold their coordinated strategies such that no one has incentive to unilaterally change her action, i.e., if a change in strategies by any one of them would lead that player to earn less than if she remained with her current strategy. A mathematical optimization model and a simulation approach are developed in this paper. The study identified a discontinuous relationship between costs and responsiveness through the operational decision of redistribution. Knowing this relationship will allow managers to determine the minimum investment to drive performance improvement and thus, make the best business-level decision at the appropriate moment. When fixed costs are low and facilities increase after game-simulation, capacity efficiency is likewise high regardless of item-simulation.
