Approaches for the Efficiency Improvement of Distribution Channels of the Manufacturer

Student: Anastasiya Andreeva

Supervisor: Vladislav Lukinsky

Faculty: St.Petersburg School of Economics and Management

Educational Programme: Strategic Management in Logistics (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2017

Keywords: inventory management, distribution, multi-echelon supply chain. This Graduation Thesis is concerned with developing and implementing the methods used to increase the efficiency of distribution systems as a key factor in supply chain management performed by manufacturer. The Graduation Thesis objective is to improve distribution network through the multi-echelon supply chain parameters optimization. According to the stated objective, the most current investigations in the field of distribution were systematized and an algorithm was developed to select the optimal configuration of the delivery parameters. The scientific novelty of the studies performed is as follows: - the algorithm for calculating the optimal configuration of multi-nomenclature delivery for companies with a large geographic distribution has been developed; - the criteria for selecting the optimal configuration for multi-echelon shipment have been stated and a number of restrictions have been proposed, to maximize the approximation of the calculation model to real economic conditions. Practical application of the Graduation Thesis findings lies in the fact that the multi-echelon shipment will allow manufacturing enterprises to maintain a high level of service while minimizing the costs of physical distribution in the supply chain.
