原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)We consider a two-echelon supply chain in which an upstream manufacturer (M) and a downstream retailer (R) share the product liability cost caused by quality defects. We assume that M and R share the expected liability cost per unit of the low-quality product (the ULQ liability cost). We use two respective Stackelberg games to model two different channel leadership structures: the manufacturer-led Stackelberg (MS) and the retailer-led Stackelberg (RS). We first obtain the analytical subgame perfect equilibria for the games. Subsequently, we investigate the impacts of the ULQ liability cost sharing on the product quality and the pricing decisions and on the profitability for supply chain members and the entire supply chain in equilibrium. We find that (1) in response to a...
