Economic Lot-Sizing Problem with Bounded Inventory and Lost-Sales
In this paper we consider an economic lot-sizing problem with bounded inventory and lost-sales. Different structural properties are characterized based on the system parameters such as production and inventory costs, selling prices, and storage capacities. Using these properties and the results on the lot-sizing problems with bounded inventory, we present improved and new algorithms for the problem. Specifically, we provide algorithms for the general lot-sizing problem with bounded inventory and lost-sales, the lot-sizing problem with nonincreasing selling prices and the problem with only lost-sales.
