ON COMPUTING A BUY/COPY POLICY USING THE PITT-KRAFT MODEL
1975) ON COMPUTING A BUY/COPY POLICY USING THE PITT-KRAFT MODEL. Technical Report CS75026-R, Computer Science, Virginia Tech. (
The Pitt-Kraft model of buying versus photocopying results in a small, but complex, nonlinear program. This paper identifies a Kuhn-Tucker point and demonstrates that for certain parameter values it is not optimal. A policy generation procedure is presented; the purpose is to prevent convergence of a primal algorithm to this inferior policy, which satisfies the Kuhn-Tucker optimality conditions.
