replenishment policy; finite shortage cost; linear trend in demand; finite time horizon
Summary: A new type of replenishment policy is suggested for an inventory item having a finite shortage cost and linear trend in demand over a finite time horizon. The optimal solution of the suggested replenishment policy has a lower total cost as compared with the optimal solution for the traditional replenishment policies.
