Resumen

Los estudios de operaciones comportamentales en la gestión de inventarios bajo demanda de incertidumbre se han centrado en entender los procesos de toma de decisiones de un único actor. Sin embargo, las interacciones entre múltiples actores han recibido poca atención, a pesar de su importancia para la creación de políticas adecuadas que mejoren las operaciones reales. Contribuimos a esta literatura explorando experimentalmente los sesgos de comportamiento de las decisiones de pedido de los minoristas en un sistema compuesto por dos minoristas simétricos (proveedores de noticias) y un proveedor automatizado, en el que los transbordos entre minoristas pueden utilizarse como estrategia para mejorar el rendimiento global de la cadena de suministro. Este trabajo es el primer estudio de comportamiento que evalúa si los actores coordinan sus decisiones a través de estrategias de transbordo. Analizamos el efecto de (i) diferentes condiciones de rentabilidad, (ii) comunicación y (iii) diferentes heurísticas de mejor respuesta comportamental. Los resultados muestran que los minoristas no aprovechan los transbordos para coordinar la cadena de suministro y, aunque la comunicación reduce los sesgos de pedidos de los minoristas, la coordinación no mejora. Sin embargo, la implementación de la mejor heurística de respuesta que tenga en cuenta los sesgos de comportamiento mejora la coordinación de la cadena de suministro.

N2 - Behavioral operations studies in inventory management under demand uncertainty have focused on understanding decision-making processes of a single actor. However, interactions among multiple actors have received little attention, despite their importance for the creation of proper policies that improve real operations. We contribute to this literature by experimentally exploring the behavioral biases of retailers’ ordering decisions in a system composed by two symmetric retailers (newsvendors) and an automated supplier, where transshipments between retailers can be used as a strategy to improve the overall supply chain performance. This paper is the first behavioral study that evaluates whether actors coordinate their decisions through transshipment strategies. We analyze the effect of (i) different profitability conditions, (ii) communication and (iii) different behavioral best response heuristics. Results show retailers do not take advantage of transshipments to coordinate the supply chain, and although communication reduces retailers’ ordering biases, coordination does not improve. However, implementing best response heuristics that account for behavioral biases improves supply chain coordination.
