Optimal selling price and lotsize with time varying deterioration and partial backlogging. (English) Zbl 1231.90055

Summary: The article deals with an EOQ (economic order quantity) model over an infinite time horizon for perishable items where demand is price dependent and partial backorder is permitted. The rate of deterioration is taken to be time proportional and it is assumed that shortage occurs at starting of the inventory cycle. Based on the partial backlogging and lost sale cases, the author develops the criterion for the optimal solution for the replenishment schedule, and proves the optimal ordering policy is unique. Moreover, the article suggests to new functions regarding price-dependent demand and time varying deterioration rate. Finally, numerical examples are illustrated to test the model in various issues.
