Efficiency Increase Models of Two-Level Echelon Logistic Systems

Open access


In this article we deal with the approach to logistic systems efficiency increase on the basis of various forms of logistic integration development in supply chains, with modified variants of model of economic order quantity for the echelon two-level systems which allow considering the costs correlations at the different system levels, the different stock warehousing strategies, the multi-nomenclature of orders. The appropriate calculations have been done for the suggested modified models approbation.
