Convex hull results for the warehouse problem

Laurence A. Wolsey, Hande Yaman
2018 Discrete Optimization  
Given an initial stock and a capacitated warehouse, the warehouse problem aims to decide when to sell and purchase to maximize profit. This problem is common in revenue management and energy storage.  ...  We extend this problem by incorporating fixed costs and provide convex hull descriptions as well as tight compact extended formulations for several variants.  ...  Introduction The warehouse problem, introduced by Cahn [1] , is to optimally decide on purchasing (or production), storage and sales quantities for a product with a fixed warehouse capacity and a given  ...

A simple and fast 2-approximation algorithm for the one-warehouse multi-retailers problem [chapter]

Gautier Stauffer, Guillaume Massonnet, Christophe Rapine, Jean-Philippe Gayon
2011 Proceedings of the Twenty-Second Annual ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms  
We consider a well-known NP-hard deterministic inventory control problem: the One-Warehouse Multi-Retailer (OWMR) problem.  ...  We then show how this algorithm can be improved to a 2-approximation by halving the demands at the warehouse and at the retailers in the subproblems.  ...  Only few papers propose algorithms or heuristics to solve the OWMR problem in its discrete-time version.  ...
