EOQ and EPQ with linear and fixed backorder costs: Two cases identified and models analyzed without calculus

Abstract

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. r 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
