This research deals with a two-layered dynamic supply chain model representing decisionmaking processes of individual clients and suppliers, and also negotiation processes among all clients and suppliers. In the model, suitable prices and delivery times are determined through both the scheduling processes of the individual suppliers and the negotiation processes among the clients and the suppliers. Dynamic production scheduling processes of the suppliers are newly considered in the model to deal with the trade-off between the prices and the delively times. The effectiveness of the proposed model is verified through computational experiments from the viewpoints of the profits of the suppliers.
