Abstract
For the characteristics of the demand of the electric maintenance materials is frequent and smaller single-demand, this paper discuss the concentrated delivery mode in vendor-managed inventory (VMI). Two different concentrated delivery schemes have been proposed in the literature for the problem: the time-based scheme and the quantity-based scheme, then we break down the total inventory and distribution costs, and the long-term average cost and average waiting time of the two schemes are given under the condition of the optimal decision. At last, we conduct an empirical analysis combined with the electric maintenance materials distribution of a grid enterprise, the results show that, relative to the real-time replenishment delivery scheme, concentrated delivery schemes have lower cost, and in the two strategies, the quantity-based scheme has lowest cost, but the time-based scheme which takes into account the costs and service levels is the more comprehensive scheme, this scheme guarantee their service levels on the basis of economies of scale.
