Authors:R.P. Tripathi, Hari Shyam Pandey Pages: 77 - 92 Abstract: The occurrence of numerous markets creates gainful opportunities to vendors and buyers. In this regard, this paper consists of the joint relationship between price sensitive demands with Weibull allocation decline. This study is annoyed by Soni (2013) considering Weibull distribution deterioration with two parameter under trade credits. Mathematical model is established for finding optimal cycle time and total turnover considering three cases for each situation depending on the position of time after which item starts to deteriorate and credit period. The objective of this investigation is to find the optimal total profit over cycle time. Further, we use numerical examples and sensitive analysis to illustrate the results and conclude the paper with suggestion for possible future research. Mathematica 7.1 software is used for numerical results.

Authors:R.P. Tripathi, Hari Shyam Pandey, Pravin Kumar Srivastava Pages: 124 - 141 Abstract: In this study, we consider economic order quantity (EOQ) model over a restricted horizon, where demand rate follows a two-parameter Weibull time-linked. Shortages are tolerable and absolutely backlogged. Mathematical formulations are derived under two unlike state of affairs, i.e., Case 1: permissible delay is fewer than or identical time to close positive inventory for settling the account and Case 2: allowable delay period is larger than time to finish positive inventory. Based on the most favourable solutions, several significant outcomes are derived and arithmetic examples are given to authenticate the projected model. Sensitivity investigation is discussed to investigate effects of dissimilarity with variation in one constraint at a time on best possible clarification.

Authors:Daria Minashkina, Ari Happonen Pages: 142 - 166 Abstract: Publication reveals the current literature knowledge, intersection of 3PLs and warehouse management systems. The systematic literature review found 58 relevant publications, which were studied and classified to five most apparent and clearly present main groups. Groups were: a clear reference in the publication to WMS and 3PLs, WMS warehouse characteristics, WMS taxonomy division, WMS functions scope and WMS deployment considerations. Only eight publications were found to consider 3PLs using WMSs. The found literature did not contain any publications directly discussing 3PLs running and installing a WMS with the goal of running customers' warehouses. Some found publications used IMS as a substitute for WMS, even when the meaning is not the same. Given the systematic review process, the large number of covered database and wide range of keywords, the scarcity of results was surprising. Not even a publication with content of 3PLs selection a proper WMS for customer warehouse operations was found. Results indicate strong need to fill this research gap.
