Abstract

Paying a premium in a cloud manufacturing free market environment will benefit a customer during steady state scenarios, however during disruption this benefit diminishes to zero; dependent on the degree of disruption. These customers will recover quicker from disruptions, but the returns are small compared to the relative increase in cost. A cloud manufacturing scenario without contracts or preferential supply acts as a free market, this significantly increases supply chain risk. The predominant mechanism available to mitigate supply chain risk is the willingness to pay a premium. Agent-based simulation modelling experiments investigated this scenario using an extension of anarchic manufacturing for scheduling and control. The experiments induced a disruptive demand-side step change in requirement mix of capabilities and volume demanded by all customers. One customer was willing to pay a significant premium to the others. The waiting time (non-operating time) was analysed as the benefit and indicator for supply chain performance. The job cost for the customer willing to pay a premium relative to other customers and the relative waiting time were analysed during steady state, disruption, and recovery periods.
