Evaluation of Lot Sizing Techniques

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Standard lot-sizing models are often not directly applicable in practice. Different assumptions in lot-sizing models and the extent to which these assumptions are valid in various practical situations are discussed. Practitioners also tend to prefer simple standard methods even for complex problems, which means that adjustment of the lot sizes may be desirable. The ways in which such adjustments can be carried out are analysed.
