We address a multi-item capacitated lot-sizing problem with setup times that arises in real-world production planning contexts. Demand cannot be backlogged, but can be totally or partially lost. Safety stock is an objective to reach rather than an industrial constraint to respect. The problem is NP-hard. We propose mixed integer programming heuristics based… CONTINUE READING
