Abstract

Information asymmetry disintegrates the performance of Supply Chains, by inducing misallocation of the available and potential resources, discriminatory pricing and allocation policies leading to winners and losers in the wealth creation game, arbitrage, lead-times variations and unpredictability. We provide the theoretical underpinning that can reinforce truthful information sharing, that is an incentive compatible mechanism. We focus on scenarios about allocating the capacity of a supplier. An implementation of the mechanism was presented in the form of SSCC protocols by Lazaris (2008). Managerial implications are issues for further discussions.
