The demand of many products is connected to the weather patterns during and before the selling season. Ice cream can be best sold during warm summers, of course. But also other food products or clothes exhibit weather dependent demand pattern.
Many articles, including my own research show, that companies tend to focus largely on risk mitigation measures concerning the supply side. Only little is done to include demand side risks or demand side measures into the mitigation of supply chain risks. The study “Pricing During Disruptions: A Cause of the Reverse Bullwhip Effect” focusses on optimal pricing measures during a disruption. And so it helps to close the gap a little bit.
