Abstract

In this paper, a production inventory model is considered for stochastic demand with the effect of inflation. Generally, every manufacturing system wants to produce perfect quality items. However, due to real-life problems (labor problems, machine breakdown, etc.), a certain percentage of products are of imperfect quality. The imperfect items are reworked at a cost. The lifetime of a defective item follows a Weibull distribution. Due to the production of imperfect quality items, a product shortage occurs. The profit function is derived by using both a general distribution of demand and the uniform rectangular distribution of demand. Computational experiments along with graphical illustrations are presented to discuss the optimality of the probability functions.
