|Abstract:||We present a general control and improvement strategy for one-level supply chain based on maintaining the divergence of the system close to zero at each time step. The on-line implementations as well as the results obtained are shown for a logistic chain model with an Order-Up-To policy using several demand patterns. The divergence can be obtained using the state space volume calculated with all the state variables of the model. However, it is also possible to calculate the divergence by applying state space reconstruction techniques using only one state variable. The results obtained with both approaches show that this strategy allows the reduction of the total cost.|
