Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This work presents an optimization method to solve a multi productcapacitated lot sizing problem with pricing. In this way, prices and inventorydecisions are coordinated. A heuristic methodology based on a modified versionof a Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition approach is proposed. Experimental results incomparison to CPLEX 11.1 are reported. ICIC International
