In just-in-time (JIT) production systems, there is both input stock in the form of parts and output stock in the form of product at each stage. These activities are controlled by production-ordering and withdrawal kanbans. This paper discusses a discrete-time optimal control problem in a multistage JIT-based production and distribution system with stochastic demand and capacity, developed to minimize the expected total cost per unit of time. The problem can be formulated as an undiscounted… CONTINUE READING
