Reyniers, Diane J. and Tapiero, Charles S. (1995) The delivery and control of quality in supplier-producer contracts. Management Science, 41 (10). pp. 1581-1590. ISSN 0025-1909
We model the effect of contract parameters such as price rebates and after-sales warranty costs on the choice of quality by a supplier, the inspection policy of a producer, and the resulting end product quality. Both noncooperative and cooperative settings are explored. The paper's contribution is to highlight the importance of strategic and contractual issues in quality management.
