Multi objective fuzzy inventory model with deterioration, price and time dependent demand and time dependent holding cost

Satya Kumar Das, Sahidul Islam


In this paper, we have formulated an inventory model with time dependent holding cost, selling price as well as time dependent demand. Multi-item inventory model has been considered under limitation on storage space. Due to uncertainty all the require cost parameters are taken as generalized trapezoidal fuzzy number. Our proposed multi-objective inventory model has been solved by using fuzzy programming techniques which are FNLP, FAGP, WFNLP and WFAGP methods. A numerical example is provided to demonstrate the application of the model. Finally to illustrate the model and sensitivity analysis and graphical representation have been shown.
