Abstract

For quality improvement purposes often times, a manufacturing unit has to change certain parts of equipment. Any such changes in the assembly line manufacturing system or production process involves a cost known as the setup cost. Minimizing the setup cost and improving the product quality is of prime importance in today's competitive business arena. This paper develops the effects of setup cost reduction and quality improvement in a two-echelon supply chain model with deterioration. The objective is to minimize the total cost of the entire supply chain model (SCM) by simultaneously optimizing setup cost, process quality, number of deliveries, and lot size. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate the model.
