ABSTRACT
The problem of determining the optimal production policy is addressed for a single-period production-inventory problem when both demand and production yield are stochastic. For uniformly distributed demand and yield the optimal policy is derived analytically. It is shown that, in contrast to that which is stated in literature, this policy can be of a non-linear type. Managerial aspects regarding this policy property are also discussed.

    Demand for a seasonal product persists for a fixed period of time. Normally the "finite time horizon inventory control problems" are formulated for this type of demands. In reality, it is difficult to predict the end of a season precisely. It is thus represented as an uncertain variable and...

    We show that a modified base-stock policy is optimal for multiproduct, infinite-horizon production-inventory systems, where demand for the products is random and the products share a finite resource every period. We characterize the optimal policy for the case of homogeneous products. Because of...

    This paper considers the stock rationing problem of a single-item, make-to-stock production system with several demand classes and lost sales. When demand is Poisson and processing time has an Erlang distribution, we show that a single-state variable called work storage level can be employed to...

    This paper derives the optimal simultaneous capacity and production plan for a short-life-cycle, produce-to-stock good under stochastic demand. Capacity can be reduced as well as added, at exogenously set unit prices. In both cases studied, with and without carry-over of unsold units, a target...

    We consider the problem of precise estimation of service-level measures in multistage production-inventory systems when the system is managed for high levels of service. Precisely because the service level is high, stockouts, large backorders, and unfilled demands are rare and thus difficult to...
