Abstract: In this paper, we consider an inventory model for deteriorating items with salvage value. We have considered time dependent Weibull deterioration in developing this model. Three parameter Weibull distributions have been used for this purpose. A numerical example is provided here for illustration. The sensitivity analysis has also been carried out to study the effect of changes in parameters using the numerical example.

Keywords: inventory modelling; Weibull distributions; salvage value; deteriorating items.
