  2. 2. Coordinated control of Multi-Stage Inventory System

    Författare :Johan Marklund; Produktionsekonomi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Inventory systems; multi-echelon; stochastic; decentralization; centralized control; distribution system; divergent system; echelon-stock; installation-stock.;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is based on three scientific papers dealing with different models for coordinated control of multi-stage inventory systems. The ability to control multi-echelon inventory systems, is paramount for reducing tied up capital and inventory costs in large distribution systems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. On Determination of Inventory Cost Parameters

    Författare :Peter Berling; Produktionsekonomi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Produktionsteknik; Production technology; Transportteknik; Transport technology; Ordering cost; Shortage cost; Capital cost; Holding cost; Inventory control; Real options;

    Sammanfattning : Efficient inventory control depends on correct values of inventory cost parameters, such as holding costs, shortage/stockout costs and ordering/setup costs. However, there exists surprisingly little research concerning the size of these parameters or how they should be determined. This thesis is devoted to increasing our knowledge of these matters.
