On the complexity of the economic lot-sizing problem with remanufacturing options
In this paper we investigate the complexity of the economic lot-sizing problem with remanufacturing (ELSR) options. Whereas in the classical economic lot-sizing problem demand can only be satisfied by production, in the ELSR problem demand can also be satisfied by remanufacturing returned items. Although the ELSR problem can be solved efficiently for some special cases, we show that the problem is NP-hard in general, even under stationary cost parameters.
