In this paper we present a method to obtain the solution of the classic economic order quantity (EOQ) and economic production quantity (EPQ) models when the lot size must be an integer quantity. This approach is operatively very simple and allows obtaining a rule to discriminate between the situation in which the optimal solution is unique and when there are two optimal solutions. Also, this method is applicable to the resolution of other production-inventory models. We expose some of them and… CONTINUE READING
