    Abstract/Description

    A simple value chain is modeled by a contractor (dual operator) making an agreement with a customer (primal operator) to complete a project in a number of stages monitored within a certain agreed time scale. The customer defines the demand (D) for services and products at each stage of the project while the contractor determines the way in which these services are supplied (Q), including a safety margin (k ) to ensure customer satisfaction and successful completion on time in the risky environment.
