Lecture 5: Economic Lot Scheduling Example Consider the economic lot sizing problem with n items, setup times s i , demand rate λ i , holding cost rate h i , production rate μ i and fixed costs K i for all i = 1 ,...,n . The goal is to determine the cycle times, T i for each item. In other words if T i is the cycle period for item i , item i should be produced for ρ i T i amount of time every T i units of time. Note that in this problem we have a constraint that the machine can only process a single item at a time. We discussed that the following capacity constraint is necessary for a feasible solution to exist. n X i =1 ± s i T i + ρ i ² 1 . The left hand side of the above constraint is the average utilization of the machine per unit time or the fraction of time the machine must be busy to satisfy all the demand. However, we can show that T i satisfying the above constraint may not produce a feasible schedule. Example
