Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The paper proposes a two-stage inventory model for periodical products. Under the demand of endusers being normal, the manufacturing firm determines a wholesale price and the retailers order the products according to Newsboy Rule. We derive the wholesale price and material ordering quantity based on ensuing the optimization of the producer's profit. The necessary and sufficient conditions of the optimal solution are exploited for proposing a procedure to solve the problem.
