Proportional lot sizing and scheduling: Some extensions

Journal Article


This contribution generalizes the work of Drexl and Haase about the so‐called proportional lot sizing and scheduling problem which was published in 1995. While the early paper considered single‐level cases only, the paper at hand describes multilevel problems, i.e., items are interconnected via a directed network of acyclic precedence constraints. It provides mixed‐integer programs for several important extensions which differ in the allocation of resources. A generic solution method is presented, and following the preceding paper, a randomized regret‐based sampling method is tested. A computational study proves that, even for the multilevel case which is far more complex than the single‐level problem, promising results are obtained. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
