This paper addresses how different coordination mechanisms affect the information sharing behavior in a supply chain. We study information sharing in a make-to-stock supply chain under wholesale contract and revenue sharing contract. Under wholesale contract, we show that information sharing is always beneficial to the supplier and identify the conditions ensuring that information sharing is beneficial to the retailer. Under revenue sharing contract, information sharing is beneficial to the supplier, the retailer and the supply chain. This research indicates that whether sharing the demand information is beneficial depends on the coordination mechanism and parameters.
