In this paper, we will develop a new multi-item economic production quantity model with limited storage space. This new model will then be extended to allow for fuzzy demand and solved numerically with a non-linear programming solver for two cases: in the first case the optimization problem will be defuzzified with the signed distance measure and in the second case, the storage constraint needs to be fulfilled, only to a certain degree of possibility. Both cases are solved and illustrated with an example.
