  This article investigates integrated production-inventory models with backorder. A single supplier and a single buyer are considered and shortage as backorder is allowed for the buyer. The proposed models determine optimal order quantity, optimal backorder quantity and optimal number of deliveries on the joint total cost for both buyer and supplier. Two cases are discussed: single-setup-single-delivery (SSSD) case and single-setup-multiple-deliveries (SSMD) case. Two algorithms are applied for optimizing SSMD case: Gradient search and particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithms. Finally, numerical example and sensitivity analysis are provided to compare the total cost of the SSSD and SSMD cases and effectiveness of the considered algorithms. Findings show that the policy of frequent shipments in small lot sizes results in less total cost than single shipment policy .

Improvement in supply chain performance is one of the major issues in the current world. Lack of coordination in the supply chain is the main drawback of supply chain that many researchers have proposed different methodologies to overcome it. VMI (Vendor-managed inventory) is one of these methodologies that implementing it has some obstacles. This paper proposes new model that is agent-managed SC. This paper is trying to use intelligent agent technology in the supply chain. In this paper supply chain assessment performance measure indicators have been divided into three categories cost, flexibility and customer responsiveness indicators. In the first category we use holding and backordered inventory costs, for second category, bullwhip effect are used and for the last one customer responsiveness indicator has been applied. Bullwhip effect is one of the main phenomena’s that has been tried to reduce it with the agent-based systems.

  inventory model,


  buyer ,


  lot for lot policy

In this paper, an inventory model for two-stage supply chain is investigated. A supply chain with single vendor and single buyer is considered. We assume that shortage as a backorder is allowed for the buyer and the vendor makes the production set up every time the buyer places an order and supplies on a lot for lot basis. With these assumptions, the joint economic lot size model is introduced and the minimum joint total relevant cost and optimal order quantity and optimal shortage quantity are obtained for both the buyer and the vendor at the same time. Numerical example is given and then Sensitivity analysis is performed to study the effects of changes in the parameters on optimum joint total relevant cost and optimal order quantity and optimal shortage quantity .

There are many numerous methods for solving large-scale problems in which some of them are very flexible and efficient in both linear and non-linear cases. League championship algorithm is such algorithm which may be used in the mentioned problems. In the current paper, a new play-off approach will be adapted on league championship algorithm for solving large-scale problems. The proposed algorithm will be used for solving large-scale solving support vector machine model which is a quadratic optimization problem and cannot be solved in a non polynomial time using exact algorithms or optimally using traditional heuristic ones in large scale sizes. The efficiency of the new algorithm will be compared to traditional one in terms of the optimality and time measures. The superiority of the algorithm can be compared versus older version.
