Development and analysis of discount-off-of-market price option contracts for procurement management
Ruz Romero, Eloy
Zhu, Wanshan
This paper analyses how to benefit from discount-­off-­of-­market price option contracts to increase supply chain efficiency when demand and spot price are random. To do so, a portfolio of these contracts and a fixed contract would be considered to do the theoretical and practical approaches. First of all, a single-­period portfolio procurement problem will be developed and a model that describes the event will be constructed. After that, this model will be solved using a geometrical approach, as in Fu et al. (2010), and a shortest-­ monotone path algorithm. Furthermore, some analysis will be done to analyse the effect of volatility of spot price and demand; the effect of correlation and the effect of using a portfolio instead of using only one or two contracts. Additionally, a two-­period extension will also be analysed. Finally, a practical study would be carried to unveil the real practicality and usefulness of discount-­off-­of-­market price option contracts.
