MANAGING SUPPLY CONTRACTS AND INVENTORY RISKS IN A SUPPLY CHAIN This
seems a more accurate characterization of Tiebout markets, as the median U.S. metropolitan
area has fewer than a dozen school districts from which to choose. It leads to a substantially
different understanding of the market dynamics, as Hoxys assumption of competing schools
with identical peer groups eliminates the stickiness that concern for peer group can create
and that is the primary focus here.

In this paper, we put forward an information theoretic deﬁnition of the redundancy that is observed across the sound inventories of the world’s languages. Through rigorous statistical analysis, we ﬁnd that this redundancy is an invariant property of the consonant inventories. The statistical analysis further unfolds that the vowel inventories do not exhibit any such property, which in turn points to the fact that the organizing principles of the vowel and the consonant inventories are quite different in nature. ...
In this chapter, the following content will be discussed: Inventory system defined, Inventory costs, independent vs. dependent demand, single-period inventory model, multi-period inventory models: basic fixed-order quantity models, multi-period inventory models: basic fixed-time period model, miscellaneous systems and issues.
This chapter will reveal the key variables involved in managing receivables effi- ciently, and it will show how these variables can be changed to obtain the optimal investment. We consider first the credit and collection policies of the firm as a whole, and then discuss credit and collection procedures for the individual account. The last part of the chapter investigates techniques for efficiently managing the final major current asset account for the typical firm – inventories.

Distribution Management (DM), formerly known as Velocity Management (VM), is an Army initiative to dramatically improve the performance of key logistics processes: distribution, repair, stockage determination, and financial management. This monograph describes how the then Velocity Management initiative was used to develop and implement a new algorithm for computing inventories maintained by Army supply support activities (SSAs). The new algorithm is called dollar cost banding (DCB), and it departs in important ways from the methodology that the Army had been using.
Is it possible to use sense inventories to improve Web search results diversity for one word queries? To answer this question, we focus on two broad-coverage lexical resources of a different nature: WordNet, as a de-facto standard used in Word Sense Disambiguation experiments; and Wikipedia, as a large coverage, updated encyclopaedic resource which may have a better coverage of relevant senses in Web pages.
