In this article, we develop a model to determine the economic production run length for a deteriorating production system and allowable shortages in fuzzy random environments. Based on the credibility measure of fuzzy event, the economic production quantity model with fuzzy random elapsed time can be transformed into a crisp model when deriving the expected total cost per unit time. The optimal production run length is proved to exist and be unique. Bounds for the optimal production run length are provided. Furthermore, the bisection method searching for the optimal production run length is designed. The relevant applications of the model are outlined. Finally, a numerical example is given to confirm the proposed model. Copyright © 2015 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd. Source

In this paper, we investigates the learning effect of the unit production time on optimal lot size for the imperfect production process with partial backlogging of shortage quantity in fuzzy random environments. It is assumed that the setup cost, the average holding cost, the backorder cost, the raw material cost and the labour cost are characterized as fuzzy variables and the elapsed time until the machine shifts from “in-control” state to “out-of-control” state is characterized as a fuzzy random variable. As a function of these parameters, the average total cost is also a random fuzzy variable. Based on the credibility measure of fuzzy event, the fuzzy random total cost function is transformed into an equivalent crisp function. We propose an algorithm to determine the optimal solution. Furthermore, the model is illustrated with the help of numerical example. Finally, sensitivity analysis of the optimal solution with respect to major parameters is carried out. © 2014 Springer Science+Business Media New York Source
