This article experiment. Further, the effects of different parameters are analysed by performing sensitivity analyses on the optimal policy. explores an economic production quantity model (EPQ) model for deteriorating items with time-dependent demand following trapezoidal pattern taking the volume flexibility into account.

The model is also illustrated by means of numerical
