Abstract : In the paper, is considered a concave-cost, series production and inventory system with deterministic demands in which (i) backlogging at the final facility and/or (ii) demands at an intermediate facility is allowed. A dynamic programming algorithm for (i) will be developed. It is the direct extension of the results obtained by W. Zangwill for the similar system without backlogging or intermediate demands.
