The sensitivity of the inventory model with partial backorders. (English) Zbl 1044.90003

Summary: This paper uses the rigorous methods of mathematics to explore the analysis of the sensitivity of K. S. Park [Int. J. Syst. Sci. 13, 1313–1317 (1982; Zbl 0503.90035)]. However, Park discussed the analysis of the sensitivity by numerical examples. The results obtained by this paper show that the sensitivity of Park is not always true sometimes. Therefore, the researchers may be very careful to use the conclusions of the analysis of the sensitivity made by numerical examples in general.
