Event Type: 
GP-OML course

In this course two types of inventory models will be discussed:

  • Single-location inventory models;
  • Spare parts inventory models.


  • Students will learn an exact analysis for relatively simple inventory models;
  • Students will learn what can be done via approximate performance evaluation when an exact performance evaluation is not possible;
  • Students will learn about heuristics for cases where an exact optimization is not possible or has a too high computational complexity;
  • Students will exposed to open research problems.
