A comment on: A note on the EOQ-JIT relationship

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


In a recently published note in this journal the need for independent control of the production rate (R) and production time (L) was established in order to adapt the economic production quantity (EPQ) model in JIT settings. In this comment we aim to improve the relevance of EPQ in a JIT environment. We focus on two issues, namely, modelling the production rate as a decision variable and also deriving an expession for the optimal number of batches (n*) for the raw materials and/or subcomponents needed.
