However, the solution here does not need an explicit division of the decision problem to sub tasks. A central solution for SCPC seems reachable. In multi-criteria decision-making, a decision has consequences for multiple objectives. As far as all consequences and the preferred satisfaction levels are known, an objective system can be formulated. 28 Conception for a simultaneous capacity and price control to a definite decision, the next important objective is used [Adam 1993]48. g. maximization of sales of profitable goods under the constraint that not more than 10% idle capacity is left at the end of the period)49.

Capacity) [see Martello/Toth 1990]. Specification of an objective system for a SCPC 35 the goods or services. Again, in order to avoid idle capacities, prices should only be as high as the expected reservation prices. The solution for the price part of the revenue maximization problem has also been the subject of various research conducted on RM. Beginning with practical applications in pricing, many other approaches to the control of prices have emerged. 1 Practical solutions for PC All developed PC methods focus mainly on the relationship between the price and the demand.

Several disadvantages of these practical methods can be stated. Firstly, for all partitioned solutions it becomes problematic if the demand forecasts, forming the basis for the building of the contingents, do not hold because of unexpected fluctuations. The fixed contingents lead then to sub-optimal solutions and resultantly, to a loss in revenue maximization. In the nested cases, one problematic assumption concerns the class determination and the initial contingents. The initial allocations and the class settings require a complete coverage of the potential demand, otherwise the methods do not lead to a maximized revenue [Hornick 1991].
