In this paper, we developed an Economic order quantity model for decaying goods with stock and time reliant demand rate under inflationary environment and time discounting over a fixed time horizon. Shortages are also permitted and are partially backordered. The results are discussed with a numerical example and particular cases are also discussed briefly.
