AbstractLot sizing in queuing networks is pivotal to batch manufacturing, especially in stochastic environments. Despite development in lot sizing optimisation, the results are often rendered unrealistic because few studies have considered the impacts of relevant environmental regulation policies on production planning. This paper incorporates stochastic lot sizing optimisation with two dominant carbon emission reduction mechanisms – the carbon emission constraint and the cap-andtrade system – to examine their operational and environmental impacts on make-to-order manufacturing. It also compares these two mechanisms in environmental conservation. Numerical experiments validate the importance of considering the carbon emission regulations to traditional production planning problems. The results highlight that the market-based characteristics of the cap-and-trade mechanism motivate firms with economic benefits to adopt low-carbon technologies and environmental-friendly facilities to curb greenhouse gases emission. In contrast, the carbon emission constraint mechanism is like administrative orders to force out outmoded industries and outdated technologies.
