We consider a decentralizedtwo-period supply chain in which a manufacturer produces a product withbenefits of cost learning, and sells it through a retailer facing aprice-dependent demand. The manufacturer’s second-period production costdeclines linearly in the first-period production, but with a random learningrate. The manufacturer may or may not have the inventory carryover option. Weformulate the resulting problems as two-period Stackelberg games and obtaintheir feedback equilibrium solutions explicitly. We then examine the impact ofmean learning rate and learning rate variability on the pricing strategies ofthe channel members, on the manufacturer’s production decisions, and on theretailer’s procurement decisions. We show that as the mean learning rate or thelearning rate variability increases, the traditional double marginalizationproblem becomes more severe, leading to greater efficiency loss in the channel.We obtain revenue sharing contracts that can coordinate the dynamic supplychain. In particular, when the manufacturer may hold inventory, we identify twomajor drivers for inventory carryover: market growth and learning ratevariability. Finally, we demonstrate the robustness of our results by examininga model in which cost learning takes place continuously.
