This study considers a make-to-stock production system with multiple identical parallel servers, fixed production start-up costs and lost sales. Processing times are assumed to be two-phase Coxian random variables that allows us to model the systems having rework or remanufacturing operations. First, the dynamic programming formulation is developed and the structure of the optimal production policy is characterized. Due to the highly dynamic nature of the optimal policy, as a seconddoi:10.11121/ijocta.01.2020.00801 fatcat:uwxuquzo7vfsjic2egnlpcqrl4
