It is a production problem of non-instantaneous deteriorating item in which production and demand rate are constant. The holding cost varies with time. Completely deteriorated units are discarded. Partially deteriorated items are allowed to carry discount, no shortage is allowed. The optimal cycle time is derived and the result is applied to numerical problems.
