A deterministic production and transportation planning problem is considered over a finite time horizon for two products that can be produced in each of two regions. Each region uses its own facility to supply the demands for two products. Demands for product 2 in one region can be satisfied either by its own production or by transportation from other region, while no transportation between two regions is allowed for product 1. Production, inventory and transportation costs are assumed to be non-decreasing and concave. The objective is to find the schedule of production and transportation in each region by which the total cost over the horizon is minimized. Using a network flow approach, we develop a dynamic programming algorithm that can find an optimal policy.
