Abstract

This note presents a modified method to compute economic order quantities without derivatives by cost-difference comparisons. Extensions to allow backorders are done for the EOQ/EPQ models. In contrast to previous literatures, limiting values on a finite planning horizon are used rather than algebraic manipulations for the cost function comparisons.
