Derive a monthly purchasing schedule if total purchasing cost is to be minimized b. Assuming that a storage charge of $250 is incurred for each 1000 units found in inventory at the end of a month. What purchasing schedule would minimize the purchasing and the storing cost ? c. Generalize the above problem for the case when there are n months with requirement of r 1 , r 2 , …,r n and the cost of c 1 , c 2 , …,c n for each month. With storage capacity of S and storage cost of SC per 1000 units, formulate a recursion that would solve the generalized problem....
