Set t 'time in quarters' / q-1*q-4 /;

Parameter
price(t)  'selling price (\$ per unit)' / q-1 10, q-2 12, q-3 8, q-4 9 /
istock(t) 'initial stock      (units)' / q-1 50 /;

Scalar
storecost 'storage cost  (\$ per quarter per unit)' /   1 /
storecap  'stocking capacity of warehouse (units)' / 100 /;

Variable
stock(t)  'stock stored at time t (units)'
sell(t)   'stock sold at time t   (units)'
buy(t)    'stock bought at time t (units)'
cost      'total cost                 (\$)';

Equation
sb(t) 'stock balance at time t (units)'
at    'accounting: total cost      (\$)';

sb(t).. stock(t) =e= stock(t-1) + buy(t) - sell(t)  + istock(t);

at..    cost =e= sum(t, price(t)*(buy(t) - sell(t)) + storecost*stock(t));

stock.up(t) = storecap;
