Abstract

Abstract. This paper proposes the consideration of non-linear cost function based on ecological considerations for lot-size planning. The classical approaches of lot-size optimization, the Wagner-Whitin algorithm and the Part- Period Balancing heuristic, are enhanced with so called eco-factors. These ecoenhanced approaches combined with eco-balancing help to reduce overall production costs. Simultaneously the environmental impact is reduced.
