A formulation of fuzzy newsboy problem


Zhongfeng Qin School of Economics and Management,Beihang University,Beijing 100191,China


<正>There are enormous literature devoted to newsboy problem with stochastic demand.However,if historical data is scare or absent in several cases,then it necessary to assume that the demand is a fuzzy variable.This paper considers the newsboy problem with fuzzy demand.The expected value model is formulated for single-product case based on a ranking criteria of fuzzy variables.The explicit expressions of the corresponding objectives are obtained for continuous fuzzy variables.Tn the end,some remarkable conclusions and future researches are listed.
