With the advancement of science and technology and the fast change of buyer requirements, the short-life products have been shortened at large, some formerly long-life products gradually turn to value deterioration products. The ratio of value deterioration products to modern products is getting higher and higher. This paper develops a deterministic economic order quantity EOQ inventory model, where the demand rate depends on the on-hand inventory when inventory level exceeds certain quantity , otherwise the demand rate is constant. The effects of obsolescence are taken into account, for it is related to the demand rate. The results are discussed through two numerical examples. A sensitivity analysis of the optimal solution with respect to parameters of the system is carried out.
