Title Transitioning Schedules for the Economic Lot Sizing Problem

A firm, which makes products with level demands on one work center, transitions, without unfilled orders, from their existing repeating schedule to a new one. If the inventory for all products is higher than that needed at any point in the new cycle then they need no transition period. The firm wants to minimize lost orders with a special transition period. The paper examines how to minimize this transition with no lost orders. A complete enumeration of all possible solutions is not always realistic. This paper shows a procedure to produce short and feasible transitions for the transition lot-sizing problem. Key Words: Scheduling, Order fulfillment.
