Details The aim of this paper is to extend research results published in two recent papers which had investigated single-vendor single-buyer inventory model with lost sales and discrete delivery orders and a model in which a single buyer orders a product from multiple vendors who deliver their products to the buyer as joint shipments. We extend the two models studied in the literature by considering a multi-product three-echelon supply chain including multiple suppliers, single manufacturer and single distributor with discrete delivery orders for raw materials and products. We assume that each product needs a specific raw material provided by the suppliers and the raw materials are delivered in batches to the manufacturer, which produces n products through n types of raw materials, and sends them to the distributor. All the products are manufactured utilising one machine and delivered in batches to the distributor.
