We present a thorough analysis of the economic production quantity model with shortages under a general inventory cost rate function and piecewise linear concave production costs. Consequently, an effective solution procedure, particularly useful for an approximation scheme, is proposed. A computational study is appended to illustrate the performance of the proposed solution procedure.Determination of recovery effort for a probabilistic recovery system under various inventory control policies

In this study we investigate the desired level of recovery under various inventory control policies when the success of recovery is probabilistic. All the used and returned items go into a recovery process that is modelled as a single stage operation. The recovery effort is represented by the expected time spent for it. The effect of increasing recovery effort on the success probability together with unit cost of the operation is included by assuming general forms of dependencies. Alternative to recovered items, demand is satisfied by brand-new items. Four inventory control policies that differ in timing of and information used in purchasing decision are proposed. The objective is to find the recovery level together with inventory control parameter that minimize the long-run average total cost. A numerical study covering a wide range of system parameters is carried out. Finally computational results are presented with their managerial implications.Dynamic lot sizing with product returns

We address the dynamic lot sizing problem for systems with product returns. The demand
and return amounts are deterministic over the finite planning horizon. Demands can be
satisfied by manufactured/procured new items, but also by remanufactured returned items.
The objective is to determine those lot sizes for manufacturing and remanufacturing that
minimize the total cost composed of holding cost for returns and serviceable products and
set-ups costs. Two different set-up cost schemes are considered; there is either a joint set-up
cost for manufacturing and remanufacturing (single production line) or separate set-up costs
(dedicated production lines). For the joint set-up cost case, we present an exact, polynomial
time dynamic programming algorithm. For both cases, we propose a number of heuristics
and test them in an extensive numerical study.A comparison of inventory control policies for a joint manufacturing/Remanufacturing environment with remanufacturing yield loss

We consider a joint manufacturing / remanufacturing environment with remanufacturing yield loss. Demand and return follow independent stationary Poisson processes. Returns can be disposed off upon arrival to the system. Manufacturing and remanufacturing operations performed in the same facility at exponential rates. Yield information becomes available after remanufacturing. Demands that are not directly satisfied are lost. We investigate what inventories to consider when making production and disposal decisions, with the objective of maximizing the long-run average expected profit. Four different policies are compared that base disposal decisions on either the local (returns) inventory or the global inventory, and production decisions on either the local (serviceable) inventory or the global inventory. By modelling the system as a Markov process, expressions for the profit associated with each policy are derived. An extensive numerical study shows that it is always optimal to base disposal decisions on the local inventory and production decisions on the global inventory within the parameter sets considered. A sensitivity analysis reveals further insights.A Multi-Item Inventory Model With Joint Setup And Concave Production Costs

The present paper discusses an approach to solve the joint replenishment problem in a production environment with concave production cost functions. Under this environment, the model leads to a global optimization problem, which is investigated by using some standard results from convex analysis. Consequently, an effective solution procedure is proposed. The proposed procedure is guaranteed to return a solution with a predetermined quality in terms of the objective function value. A computational study is provided to illustrate the performance of the proposed solution procedure with respect to the running time.A Deterministic Inventory/Production Model with General Inventory Cost Rate Function and Concave Production Costs

We present a thorough analysis of the economic order quantity model with shortages under a general inventory cost rate function and concave production costs. By using some standard results from convex analysis, we show that the model exhibits a composite concave-convex structure. Consequently, an effective solution procedure, particularly useful for an approximation scheme, is proposed. A computational study is appended to illustrate the performance of the proposed solution procedure.Determination of recovery effort for a probabilistic recovery system under various inventory control policies

In this article, we investigate the profitability of remanufacturing option when the manufactured and remanufactured products are segmented to different markets and the production capacity is finite. It is assumed that remanufactured products can be substituted by the manufactured ones. A single period profit model under substitution is constructed to investigate the system conditions under which remanufacturing is profitable. We present analytical findings and computational results to show profitability of remanufacturing option under substitution policy subject to a capacity constraint of the joint manufacturing/remanufactruing facility.
