This paper deals with lot sizing and scheduling for a single-stage production system where setup costs and times are sequence dependent. A large bucket mixed integer programming (MIP) model is formulated which considers only efficient sequences. A tailor-made enumeration method of the branch-andbound type solves problem instances optimally and efficiently. Furthermore, it will become clear that rescheduling can neatly be done.
