# A new approach based on inventory control using interval differential equation with application to manufacturing system

• Now-a-days, uncertainty conditions play an important role in modelling of real-world problems. In this regard, the aim of this study is two folded. Firstly, the concept of system of interval differential equations and its solution procedure in the parametric approach have been proposed. To serve this purpose, using parametric representation of interval and its arithmetic, system of linear interval differential equations is converted to the system of differential equations in parametric form. Then, a mixing problem with three liquids is considered and the mixing process is governed by system of interval differential equations. Thereafter, the mixing liquid is used in the production process of a manufacturing firm. Secondly, using this concept, a production inventory model for single item has been developed by employing mixture of liquids and the proposed production system is formulated mathematically by using system of interval differential equations.The corresponding interval valued average profit of the proposed model has been obtained in parametric form and it is maximized by centre-radius optimization technique. Then to validate the proposed model, two numerical examples have been solved using MATHEMATICA software. In addition, we have shown the concavity of the objective function graphically using the code of 3D plot in MATHEMATICA. Finally, the post optimality analyses are carried out with respect to different system parameters.
