The EOQ and EPQ models with linear and fixed backorder costs are newly analyzed and all formulae are proven using only algebra. Two cases are identified, where backorders should and should not be allowed. The results are shown to include several known special cases.
This paper introduces and examines a generalized EOQ formula, based on the model with linear and fixed backordering costs. The new square-root formula is a combination of two well-known classical models, the basic EOQ model without stockouts and the EOQ model with backorders and linear backordering costs. Helping to combine the two is a new parameter, a… (More)
