Recently, Moussawi-Haidar et al. (2016) considered a production process with random supply and an inspection process performed during and at the end of production. Two economic production quantity models with defective items were developed, in which Model 1 assumes that defective items are sold at a discounted price at the end of inspection process, and Model 2 assumes that defective items are reworked at a cost at the end of inspection process. In the paper, there are some mathematical expressions which are to be corrected. We first present the mathematical expressions corrected and establish the necessary conditions for which there is an optimal solution. We next provide the correct solutions to the numerical example.
