In this paper we have developed an inventory model for a single deteriorating item with two separate storage facilities (one is owned warehouse (OW) and the other a rented warehouse (RW)) and in which demand is selling- price dependent. Shortage is allowed and is partially backlogged with a rate dependent on the duration of waiting time up to the arrival of next lot. It is assumed that the holding cost of the rented warehouse is higher than that of owned warehouse. As demand, selling- price, holding- cost, shortage, lost- sale, deterioration- rate are uncertain in nature, we consider them as triangular fuzzy numbers and developed the model for fuzzy total cost function and is defuzzified by using Signed Distance and Centroid methods. In order to validate the proposed model, we compare the results of crisp and fuzzy models through a numerical example and based on the example the effect of different parameters have been rigorously studied by sensitivity analysis taking one parameter at a time keeping the other parameters unchanged.
