Abstract

This paper considers the problem of co-investment in a supply chain infrastructure using an inter-temporal model. We assume that firms' capital is essentially the supply chain's infrastructure. As a result, firms' policies consist in selecting an optimal level of employment as well as the level of co-investment in the supply chain infrastructure. Several applications and examples are presented and solutions found for non-cooperating firms and centralized investment. Non-simultaneous moves (Stackelberg) firms are treated in an extended version of this paper.
