This paper is concerned with a generalization of classical inventory models (with xed ordering costs) that exhibit (s; S) policies. In our model, the distribution of demands in successive periods is dependent on a Markov chain. The model includes the case of cyclic or seasonal demand. The model is further extended to incorporate some other realistic(More)
1 Abstract. This paper is concerned with the optimal production planning in a dynamic stochastic manufacturing system consisting of a single or parallel machine that are failure prone and facing a constant demand. The objective is to choose the rate of production over time in order to minimize the long-run average cost of production and surplus. The(More)
