We consider a robust inventory problem where products are perishable with a given shelf life and demands are assumed uncertain and can take any value in a given polytope. Interestingly, considering uncertain demands leads to part of the production being spoiled, a phenomenon that does not appear in the deterministic context. Based on a deterministic model we propose a robust model where the production decisions are first-stage variables and the inventory levels and the spoiled production are… CONTINUE READING
