Boundary conditions for generalized hedging point policies in stochastic manufacturing systems

Christian VAN DELFT

Abstract: The production control, via hedging point policies, of a single part type manufacturing system with stochastic capacity and demand is discussed. In the present paper, several feasible operational modes may correspond to equal hedging points. For such generalized hedging point policies, we establish specific boundary conditions around the hedging points, which permit to compute the stationary probability density function for the hybrid state of the system.
