An extended production-inventory system and its modelling
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
With today's global competitive environment and changing customer requirements, companies are nowadays shifting from product-oriented to customer-oriented production. In this paper, we introduce the concept of an "extended production-inventory system". The concept means that customers are included as a part of production-inventory systems; this could be regarded as an extreme case of customer-oriented manufacturing. Based on that concept, a simple extended productioninventory system is presented. In the system, the objectives of both manufacturer and customer are considered simultaneously, and it is shown how the system can be mathematically modelled applyingmultiple-objective decision-making techniques. Moreover, a numerical example is provided to illustrate how the weights of different objectives influence the optimal solutions. The strategy of customisation, facilitated by e-business, is incorporated in the model as well.
