The purpose of this paper is to look at how, in order to fit the practical environment, the scopes of the order‐quantity of a quantity discount contract are enlarged.
The contract feasible set (CFS) is discussed to extend the order quantity from a single point to an interval.
The application of the CFS can enlarge the scope of the contracts of the supply chain. The CFS can be used in the practice.
The CFS of the quantity‐discount contract only is discussed. The other contracts do not be involved.
A very useful advice for construction the parameters of the contracts.
The concept of the CFS is defined. The new approach that extend the parameters of the contracts from a single point to an interval is provided.
