This paper uses mathematical modeling to determine optimal inventory replenishment policy for the economic manufacturing quantity (EMQ) with rework and multiple shipments. The classic EMQ model considers a continuous inventory issuing policy for satisfying customer’s demands. It also assumes that all products produced are of perfect quality. However, in a(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o JEL classification: C02 M11 C44 C61 Keywords: Multi-item production system Rotation cycle time Multi-delivery Economic production quantity model Scrap Vendor–buyer integrated system This paper addresses the joint determination of a rotation cycle time and number of shipments for a multi-item economic production quantity (EPQ) model(More)
This paper investigates the optimal inventory replenishment policy for an economic production quantity (EPQ) model with backordering, rework and machine breakdown taking place in stock piling time. A prior paper by Chiu has examined the lot-sizing problem on an imperfect quality EPQ model. Due to another reliability factor random machine breakdown seems to(More)
Abstract: This study is concerned with replenishment decision making with repairable nonconforming products, backordering and random equipment failure during production uptime. In real world manufacturing systems, due to different factors generation of nonconforming items and unexpected machine breakdown are inevitable. Also, in certain business(More)
This study proposes a two-phase, algebraic approach to resolve the rotation cycle time and number of shipments for a multi-item, economic production quantity (EPQ) model with a random defective rate. A conventional method for solving a multi-item EPQ model is to use differential calculus and Hessian matrix equations on system cost function to prove(More)
A multi-customer finite production rate (FPR) model with quality assurance and discontinuous delivery policy was investigated in a recent paper (Chiu et al. in J Appl Res Technol 12(1):5-13, 2014) using differential calculus approach. This study employs mathematical modeling along with a two-phase algebraic method to resolve such a specific multi-customer(More)
This paper uses an alternative approach to reexamine a prior study on joint determination of manufacturing lot-size and shipment policy in a vendor-buyer system with rework process and an improving delivery plan. The proposed method is a straightforward approach in terms of algebraic derivations. It is different from the conventional method that needs to(More)
