dc.description.abstractA formulation is given for minimizing the expected total number of shortages in a multi-item inventory system under a continuous review policy. The variable reorder levels and order quantities must be set to meet constraints on the average expected investment in on hand inventory and on the expected number of orders placed per unit time. Several approaches to the problem are presented. (Author)en_US
