2 Application 19.19. Dynamic Lot Sizing (1) K periods of demand for a product. The demand is d j in period j. Assume that d j > 0 for j = 1 to K. Cost of producing p j units in period j: a j + b j p j h j : unit cost of carrying inventory from period j Question: what is the minimum cost way of meeting demand?

4 Lemma: There is production in period j or there is inventory carried over from period j-1, but not both. Suppose now that there is inventory from period j-1 and production in period j. Let period i be the last period in which there was production prior to period j, e.g., j = 7 and i = 4. Claim : There is inventory stored in periods i, i+1, …, j-1 4 5 6 7 K-1 K 0 D -d 4 -d 5 -d 6 -d 7 -d K-1 -d K

Thus there is a cycle C with positive flow. C = 0-4-5-6-7-0. Let x 07 be the flow in (0,7). The cost of sending units of flow around C is linear (ignoring the fixed charge for production). Let Q = b 4 + h 4 + h 5 + h 6 – b 7 . If Q < 0, then the solution can be improved by sending a unit of flow around C. If Q > 0, then the solution can be improved by decreasing flow in C by a little. If Q = 0, then the solution can be improved by increasing flow around C by x 07 units (and thus eliminating the fixed cost a 7 ). This contradiction establishes the lemma. 4 5 6 7 K-1 K 0 D -d 4 -d 5 -d 6 -d 7 -d K-1 -d K

i i+1 i+2 j-1 j 0 -d i -d i+1 -d i+2 -d j-1 -d j Let c ij be the (total) cost of this flow. c ij = a i + b i (d i + d i+1 + … + d j-1 ) + h i (d i+1 + d i+2 + … + d j-1 ) + h i+1 (d i+2 + d i+3 + … + d j-1 ) + … h j-2 (d j-1 ) Corollary . Production in period i satisfies demands exactly in periods i, i+1, …, j-1 for some j. Consider 2 consecutive production periods i and j. Then production in period i must meet demands in i+1 to j-1.
