Programming for economic lot-sizes with precedences between items

by S. Gorenstein
Discussed is an optimal programming model for lot-size, inventory, and work-force planning over a finite planning horizon for assembly-type production. The object is to prepare a minimum cost lot-size and work-force plan that meets the deterministic demands within the resource constraints. Planning for end-items, components, and overtime is included. The main feature of the model is the ability to plan for assembly production having precedences with nonlinear (set-up) costs using essentially linear programming computations.
