dc.description.abstract Segmenting large supply chains into lean and agile segments has become a powerful strategy allowing companies to manage different market demands effectively. A current stream of research into supply chain segmentation proposes demand volume and variability as the key segmentation criteria. This literature adequately justifies these criteria and analyses the benefits of segmentation. However, current work fails to provide approaches for allocating products to segments which go beyond simple rules of thumb, such as 80-20 Pareto rules. We propose a joint network and safety stock optimisation model which optimally allocates Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) to segments. We use this model, populated both with synthetic data and data from a real case study and demonstrate that this approach significantly improves cost when compared to using simple rules of thumb alone. en_UK
