Abstract

Recently, Sarker et al. [Sarker, B.R., Jamal, A.M.M., Mondal, S., 2008. Optimal batch sizing in a multi-stage production system with rework consideration. European Journal of Operational Research 184(3) 915-929] presented an EPQ inventory model for a multi-stage manufacturing system with rework process; basically they proposed two operational inventory policies. In the paper, there are some mathematical expressions which are to be corrected. At first, this paper presents the mathematical expressions corrected and the appropriate solution to the numerical example. We also established the closed forms for the optimal total inventory cost, the conditions for which there is an optimal solution, and the mathematical expressions for determining the total additional cost for working with a non optimal solution for both policies that were not given by Sarker et al. (2008).
