"A Sensitivity Analysis of a (ti , Si)
Inventory Policy with Increasing Demand"

The inventory model with a (ti , Si)
policy with increasing
demand is common in many practical applications. Under this
model the inventory system operates only during a prescribed
period of time. It also corresponds to the classical
deterministic, stationary demand model with no shortages. The
present sensitivity analysis reveals that there is a strong
relationship among the optimal number of replenishments, the
total demand, the planning horizon, and the optimal cost.
