Production Planning and Inventories Optimization : A Backward Approach in the Convex Storage Cost Case
We study the deterministic optimization problem of a profit-maximizing firmwhich plans its sales/production schedule. The firm controls both its productionand sales rates and knows the revenue associated to a given level of sales, aswell as its production and storage costs. The revenue and the production cost areassumed to be respectively concave and convex. In , we provide an existence resultand derive some necessary conditions of optimality. Here, we further assumethat the storage cost is convex. This allows us to relate the optimal planningproblem to the study of a backward integro-differential equation, from which weobtain an explicit construction of the optimal plan.
