Abstract

An account is given of the issues that make-to-order (MTO) firms must consider when bidding for a new job. In particular, the problem of competitive bidding with contingent orders for the static, single resource case is characterized. A technique is also introduced that simultaneously optimizes pricing and lead time series for MTO firms with contingent orders.
