A finite-horizon model for inventory returns and special sales of deteriorating items with shortages. (English) Zbl 0752.90017
A finite-horizon model for inventory returns and special sales of deteriorating items has been developed allowing shortages. It is assumed that the items begin to deteriorate at a constant rate only after a fixed interval of time from the instant of their arrival in stock. A numerical example has also been added to illustrate the results obtained.
