Abstract: An analytical production/inventory model to optimise the planning parameters lot-size, safety stock and planned lead time is developed for a stochastic single-stage production system with multiple items and limited capacity. Based on queuing analysis, the influence of item specific lot-sizes on the production lead time distribution is modelled. Applying stochastic advance demand information, the expected values for finished-goods-inventory, backorders and service level are explicitly stated. Numerical optimisa…
