Most manufacturing processes produce some defective items. To compensate for this, the total quantity produced in attempting to satisfy an order is larger than the order size. The excess is called a reject allowance. In this paper it is shown how the Markovian decision framework can be used to determine the amount to produce when production is, or can be, divided so that the products can be inspected before the production run is ended.
