Regardless of the sector, the supply chains are considered the networks of business units characterized by distinct, yet mutually interdependent, planning decision domains. The main question that arises in the management of these networks is the coordination of supply chain members' operations. But, difficulty arises when the decision domains are considered independent units. So, the problem arises when there is the question of the exchange of information between independent units.

In practice, supply chain operations are generally coordinated hierarchically, through aggregated planning, which requires a high degree of information exchanges or through the relatively inefficient upstream planning approach, in which operations are planned and the derived dependent demand is sent to suppliers. The High degree of information exchanges leads to difficulties when independent members do not want to share information, such as cost, profit margin, inventory level or capacity utilization. In order to address these difficulties, decentralized approaches of coordination of operations planning decisions based on some minimal information sharing have been proposed in many academic disciplines. During this seminar we focus on these approaches, by studying different aspect of supply chains.
