Abstract: In this paper, we make a fresh attempt to discuss fuzzified profit optimisation of inventory in supply chain with deterioration and power form stock dependent demand. After applying Zadeh's extension principle and centroid method, a system of nonlinear equation has been developed and consequently solved by using fast converging Newton-Raphson (N-R) method. The optimum profit of a fuzzified inventory control system as an important performance measure has been computed and sensitivity analysis has been also presented to demonstrate the use of the model under consideration.

Keywords: fuzzified profit optimisation; inventory flow in supply chain; system of nonlinear equations and its computing.
