报告内容摘要

In this article, a data-driven newsvendor problem is considered, in which only historical data on demand is available. In the existing data-driven newsvendor problem literature, historical data is adopted to estimate the density curve and in tuns the optimal order quantity under estimated density curve (empirical data-driven approach). Although the estimated density curve has convergence property when the sample size is large enough, the performance for this approach under limited data is unknown. With this concern in mind, we propose a robust approach based on non-parametric information for the data-driven newsvendor problem. Based on partial nonparametric information such as support, monotonicity, convexity, we develop three methods to partition the support for single-period setting. Under each partitioning method, we construct a distribution ambiguity set, build a protection curve to approximate the real distribution, and base on it to obtain closed-formexpressions for the order quantities that maximize the worst-case expected profit for the newsvendor problem. Taking the sample size and confidence level into consideration, weexplore an adaptive partitioning method for multi-period setting based on the three partitioning methods developed in single-period setting. Moreover, we compare the non-parametric approach to existing parametric approach in yielding the worst-case performance in profit generation under mass function and discrete choice model.
