Abstract / Description of output

The aim of stochastic inventory control is to determine the timing of issuing replenishment order and the corresponding order quantity subject to uncertainty of demand and/or other system parameters. In this literature survey we focus on the single-item single stocking location stochastic inventory control problem. More specically, we survey exact and heuristic models under stationary and non-stationary demand according to uncertainty strategies proposed by Bookbinder and Tan (1988).
