A sustainable inventory model for deteriorating items with variable holding cost under controllable Carbon emission and inflation.


In the present environment, global warming becomes a big issue in the world. Carbon emissions are the key factor of global warming. To reduce the carbon emission green technology investment has been used. In this paper the effect of inflation on the sustainable inventory model under carbon emission has been studied. Holding cost is assumed as a function of time which is more realistic situation. Moreover we have taken two cases (1). with shortage (i.e. partial and full backorder) and (2). without shortage. Backlogging parameter is taken as the function of time. Finally, a sensitivity analysis is also made for different parameters to obtain some useful observations
