This study clarified the effect of initial inventory on the deterioration, thus on the rate of production. The study suggested a new technique to determine the deterioration items in the production-inventory system depending on the lifetime. In other words, divided stored items into groups depending on the production date to determine the deterioration. The optimal control model was derived under periodic review policy. Our numerical results show that new suggested techniques were efficient to determine the deterioration compared with other techniques.
