Abstract

In this model, an inventory model for deteriorating products with dynamic demand is developed under time-dependent selling price. The selling price is supposed to be a time-dependent function of initial price of the products and the permissible discount rate at the time of deterioration. The object is sold with the constant rate in the absence of deterioration and is the exponential function of discount rate at the time; deterioration takes place. Here, the demand not only dependent on the selling price but also on the cumulative demand that represents the saturation and diffusion effect. First, an inventory model is formulated to characterize the profit function. The Classical optimization algorithm is used to solve the optimization problem. The objective is to maximize the total profit of the retailers with respect to the initial selling price and cycle time. Concavity of the objective function is discussed through graphs. At last, a sensitivity analysis is performed by changing inventory parameters and their impact on the decision variables i.e. (initial price, cycle time) together with the profit function.
