Abstract

The bullwhip effect has been discussed for almost two decades. Solutions to the bullwhip effect were provided since studies showed that the bullwhip effect leads to significant downside to business performance. However, recent studies still showed the existence of the bullwhip effect in various industries and countries. These findings lead to an interesting question that is the bullwhip effect unavoidable. This study applies the Box-Jenkins transfer function to investigate the existence of the bullwhip effect from an economic perspective. The author expects to answer the mentioned question that whether the bullwhip effect is really an issue.
