At each periodic review, the quantity ordered is multiple of Q, nQ and the reorder level is R, The backorder cost C?(t) is b1 e b2 t. The
expected backorder cost is derived by obtaining the difference between the expected backorder cost at time t+l and t+l+T.
In this paper demand is assumed to follow a normal distribution.
Some basic mathematics of the properties of a normal distribution is introduced to simplify the derivation of the equations.
The first order derivatives of the backorder costs are given..
