N2 - Under stochastic demand in the multi-stage SCM in a JIT environment, the probability
of generating a function of the stationary distributions of the backlogged demand was extended. The
batch size of WIPs has a great impact on the packing, unpacking or transferring costs of a chain; it
has been attempted to integrate the delivery batch size of each plant in a multi-stage serial chain with
the production-ordering and supplier kanbans of the chain. An algorithm was developed to evaluate the
optimal numbers of kanbans and batch sizes of each plant by minimizing the total cost of a chain. A
numerical example is also provided to indicate the signicance of adding the proposed assumptions, as
well as demonstrating the approach adopted towards solving the problem.
