International Journal of Computer Applications in Technology (IJCAT), Vol. 3, No. 2, 1990

Abstract: In this article an order-level-lot-size inventory model is analysed under the effects of deterioration, pilferage and the influence of pricing policies where selling price is determined according to the mark-up of unit cost. The demand is assumed to be a function of price, price elasticity and the frequency of advertisement. The net profit is then estimated as a function of demand, total inventory cost including the cost of deterioration and pilferage. The optimum values of lot size, order level and the expected profit are determined. Further, a numerical example is provided to illustrate the model and an attempt is made to depict the impact of variation in marketing factors on order level, lot size, demand and expected profit.
