Abstract

This study investigates an economic order quantity model of deteriorating items, where demand is fuzzy in nature and depends on promotional effort with full backorder for a given time horizon. The learning effect in the fuzzy environment is added in this model. A constant deterioration rate is assumed. Under these circumstances, a mathematical model is developed to curtail the total cost over a finite time horizon by determining the replenishment order quantity, number of replenishments, and the fraction of the replenishment cycle when inventory is positive. A solution algorithm is developed to find the optimal solutions. The applicability of the proposed model is illustrated through numerical examples. To get further insights, sensitivity analysis is carried out for the main parameters in crisp, fuzzy, and fuzzy-learning environments.
