inventory lot sizing with supplier selection
This talk presents a multi-period inventory lot-sizing scenario, where there are multiple products and multiple suppliers. We consider a situation where the demand of multiple discrete products is known over a planning horizon. Each of these products can be sourced from a set of approved suppliers, a supplier-dependent transaction cost applying for each period in which an order is placed on a supplier. A product-dependent holding cost per period applies for each product in the inventory that is carried across a period in the planning horizon. The decision maker needs to decide what products to order in what quantities with which suppliers in which periods. An enumerative search algorithm and two heuristics are presented to address the problem.
