Abstract. When ordering multiple items, retailers tend to be used the collaborative procurement, so conducive to the formation of scale in quantities utility. Therefore, this paper established the inventory model of the retailer in a multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items supply chain, with two kinds of incentives-credits and price discounts. Then we use the theorems to proof the existence of the optimal solution of inventory, and compare the profits under different scenarios. Finally, we use numerical examples to validate the model, we found that the optimal profits of retailer under trade credit is better than that of price discount in the multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items supply chain.

Keywords: Multiple non-instantaneous deteriorating items, trade credit, price discount, supply chain

INTRODUCTION

No-matter how big the company, they all face up two tough problems: the shortage of money and the inventory ordering policies of multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items with uncertainty demand. Especially, the extension of the concept of multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items is involving most of our daily products, with the development of society and technology. One of the most important branches of operation is the inventory model of multiple non- instantaneous deterioration items, and has been systematically summarized. But, in practice, retailers always order multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items, and the single item inventory model is not so precisely for the multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items. Therefore, to tackle the inventory ordering policies of multiple non -instantaneous deterioration items is aroused highly attention in the field of scholars. Bose et al. (1995) built up the EOQ model for deterioration goods with liner demand, allowing shortage and backlogging, and the influence of time value, firstly. And they acquire the inventory policies in difference scenarios. Moon et al. (2005) described a special kind of deterioration items, which the price goes up with time, for example, wine, poultry. And they also build up the inventory model with considering time value; Yang and Chang. (2013) formulated the optimal replenishment model by considering trade credit, time value, two warehouse and allowing shortage and backlogging; Tsao (2010) considered multi-echelon multi-item channels subject to suppliers credit period and retailers promotional effort. They analyse two trade allowances, the promotion costs sharing and the cash discount, finding that coordination mechanism is better; Wen and Da (2006) discuss single ordering, partly ordering and coordination ordering from the perspective of retailers, and they got the optimal ordering policies; Wang and Jiang (2007) compare four different circumstance of the combination of decentralized decision and cooperative decision, finding that the cooperative circumstance is better; Mo (2011) cons idered a model with demand depend on inventory and resisted space. They got the result by line search algorithm; Zhang et al. (2012) provide a completed literature review of the joint inventory policies of multi-deterioration items, and find out the inventory model of multiple deterioration items will be hot in the future.

Above all, they just consider the goods is deteriorating, when the goods arrive at the store, but, in practice, some kinds of goods have a certain life long time. So the existing models is not so precisely to tackle the inventory issues of non- instantaneous deterioration items. Wu (2006) provide the concept of non-instantaneous deterioration items, and build the related models to solve it; Chang et al. (2010) formulated the EOQ model of non-instantaneous deterioration items with considering constant demand, allowing shortage and backlogging, and the backlogging depends on the time of next replenishment time; Geetha et al. (2010) extent the model of Zhang et al.(2012), with considering demand depends on time and price, the room of retailers shelves house and the maximize of the warehouse; Maihami et al. (2013a) considered the trade credit and partly backlogging, then Maihami et al. (2013b) extent their model with demand depend

on time and price; Nita et al. (2013) assume that the demand function is rely on the advertisement and price. Whats more, the model is considering a general holding cost function and a general deteriorating rate; Dye et al. (2013) established a maximize the profit model with considering constant demand, the effect of preserve technology, a generalized deterioration rate, and inventory and backlogging depends on time. They got the different factors influence; Li and Wang (2011) built up the model of minimize the profit of retailers, and analyse the influence of the time of beginning deterioration, deterioration rate and trade period.

Above all, deterioration items inventory research can be divided into two categories: deteriorating immediately and non – instantaneous deterioration. Even there are some literatures have been studied the multi-deterioration items, but the research about non-instantaneous deterioration items with trade credit is rarely. We build up the inventory ordering model under price discount and trade credit to maximize the retailers profit, and compare the two strategies, get that the profit under trade credit is better than that of under price discount in multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items supply chain.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION, ASSUMPTIONS AND NOTATIONS

Problem description

In this paper, we consider the retailer how to make inventory policies in a multiple non-instantaneous deterioration items supply chain. In order opening, the retailer will order all the non-instantaneous deterioration items together, and at the end of ordering period, all products are already completely sold. Items have no effect to others. Meanwhile, suppliers will provide the trade credit or price discount to retailer, to stimulate the order quantity. Modelling the problem based on the process shown in Fig. 1:

Results with price discount

We discuss the optimal ordering quantity and ordering period by maximizing the profit of retailer. As pi has the same

identity and no effect to each other. We use p to alternative pi for simple. First, we discuss the (p,T ) not only exist and

the only, for any R. Then, we discuss the R not only exist and the only, for any p and T. Taking the partial derivative of TP1 with respective to p and T, we have:

According to table 1, the price of the two non-instantaneous deterioration items decrease with the price discount rate; the ordering quantity of the two non-instantaneous deterioration items increase with the price discount rate. Under the coordination order cycle, due to different deterioration rate and deterioration time will lead to different retailers strategy of different items order quantity and price. It means if the deterioration time is shorter, the retailer will order more item s and the price will be lower. The profit and order period are increasing with the discount rate.

Numerical example analysing for trade credit

Scenario 1: when the trade credit in the interval of [0, T], the result can be seen in Fig.4. According to theorem 4, if

Fig.5 when M T , the trend of profit and ordering period

According to table 2, if M T , the ordering quantity and price is stable of the two kinds non-instantaneous deterioration items. When M 0.256 , we get T* =0.295 ; when M 0.258 , we get T* =0.294 . From Fig.5, the profit is decreasing with

trade credit. So retailer will obtain the optimal value at the point of

M =T . And the profit value is TP3* =107244.2 .

From table 3, it is easy to find that TP1* <TPM . So when td <T , the profit of retailer under trade credit is better than that of price discount. And in the trade credit, the profit under M <T is better than under M >T . This is because of the former has bigger ordering quantity. Also, when 0.25<T <0.36 , it is better for retailer to order less. Fig.6 describes the change of

profit, and shows that the optimal value are

M * =0.25 , p* 149.11 , p* 246.82 , Q* =74.97 , Q* =62.99 ,

Fig.6 the trend of profit under different circumstance Conclusions

In this paper, we build up an inventory ordering model for non-instantaneously deteriorating items based on trade credit and price discount. First, established inventory ordering model under different situations by maximize retailer total revenue; then through the numerical calculation to prove the existence of the optimal solution, and obtain the optimal solution; lastly, through numerical calculate out: the retailers profit increases with the price discount rate or the trade credit ( M T ); the retailers profit decreases with the trade credit ( M T ); and the retailers profit under trade credit is better than price discount, when multiple non-instantaneously deteriorating items are ordered coordination. The retailer will be obtain his optimal profit, when M =0.25 . Whats more, this work can be extended in several ways: for instance, discussing the circumstances of td >T , uncertain demands could be considered by allowing the demand function to be driven by probability, since uncertain issues are very important on policy or decision making (Sun et al., 2018) . In addition, a constant or random ordering lead time could be considered.
