This paper considers the situation of a retail store subject to inventory inaccuracies stemming from execution problems. We assume that inventory inaccuracies are introduced by misplacement type errors that occur within the store, i.e. the whole quantity of products that is ordered and received from the supplier is not available on shelf to satisfy(More)

The inventory(More)
This paper analyzes a Newsvendor type inventory model in which a manufacturer sells a single product to a retailer store whose inventory is subject to errors stemming from execution problems. Hence, within the store, all of the products are not available on shelf for sales either because the replenishment of the shelf from the backroom is subject to(More)
A single-period, uncertain demand inventory model is analyzed under the assumption that the quantity ordered (produced) is a random variable. We first conduct a comprehensive analysis of the well known single period production/inventory model with random yield. Then, we extend some of the results existing in literature: our main contribution is to show that(More)
In this paper, we study a joint inventory and routing problem (IRP) for the food supply chain and we investigate the impact of customer satisfaction level under the optimization of the total expected cost. We propose a new bi-objective mathematical model by taking into account multi capacitated vehicles for perishable products from one supplier to many(More)
Inventory Routing Problem (IRP) for perishable products is one of the complex subjects in IRPs. Moreover, considering other criteria and constraints, such as respecting time window, managing the amount of expired products, fuel consumption and environment and social criteria bring this problem more complex. This paper presents a new model considering(More)
