This work focuses on two-step decision problem through a biform game. At the first, in an uncertain environment, each distribution center must define the quantities to be ordered from the production units in order to maximize its own gain. This requires a good forecast of demand. When the demand is deterministic, the centers collaborate to meet their local demand. In this case, it is necessary to define the appropriate cost allocation method, especially since no method guarantees all the properties defined by the literature. This paper proposes an application case of bottling company in morocco. We use neural networks to forecast demand. In the phase of collaboration, we split cost using different methods and analyze results.
