An Optimal Lot-Sizing and Offline Inspection Policy in the Case of Nonrigid Demand

  title={An Optimal Lot-Sizing and Offline Inspection Policy in the Case of Nonrigid Demand},
  author={Shoshana Anily and Abraham Grosfeld-Nir},
  journal={Operations Research},
A batch production process that is initially in the in-control state can fail with constant failure rate to the out-of-control state. The probability that a unit is conforming if produced while the process is in control is constant and higher than the respective constant conformance probability while the process is out of control. When production ends, the units are inspected in the order they have been produced. The objective is to design a production and inspection policy that guarantees a… CONTINUE READING
