Holding costs under push or pull conditions – The impact of the Anchor Point

Patrick Beullens, Gerrit K. Janssens
2011 European Journal of Operational Research  
We compute the optimal order quantity of new product and the optimal discounted price for old product given the remaining inventory level of old product in order to maximize the total profit.  ...  We first show that under certain conditions, the total profit is a concave function with respect to the order quantity and this enables an efficient algorithm to be developed to compute the optimal order  ...  At first, the credit period policy and the quantity discount policy are developed and the total profits under the two policies are compared.  ...
