    Abstract

    We introduce and formalise a scheduling problem that consists in determining an optimum policy (i.e. one that minimises total inventory holding costs) to produce n part-types using a system that is able to share its capacity at all times among these part-types and that switches between an active and an inactive state for pre-known periods of time. Consequently, when active the system must produce enough reserves to meet the demand during the inactive interval. We show that there is always a simple optimum policy in which the production of the part-types is prioritised and, provided the units are properly defined, the optimum priority ordering corresponds to a non-decreasing sequence of the unit holding costs of the part-types.
