Abstract: In times of crisis, companies need free cash flow to efficiently react against all uncertainty to ensure solvency. However, classical dynamic lot-sizing models only consider the physical flow of goods. In this paper, we introduce a first link between dynamic lot-sizing and the financial aspects of working capital requirements (WCR). We propose a new generic WCR model which allows us to evaluate the company's financial situation throughout the planning horizon. Moreover, a dynamic lot-sizing-based, discounted cash flow model is established for single-site, single-level, single-product and infinite capacity cases. It is shown that the zero-inventory ordering property holds for this case and thus a polynomial-time algorithm may be utilized. Numerical tests are presented in order to show the relevance of our approach compared with the traditional dynamic lot-sizing model.
