Abstract:

This research explores the use of servo - control modeling and analysis techniques in the analysis of inventory systems. The analysis is conducted with respect to both deterministic and random demand inputs to the system. The effects of different levels of proportional control are discussed with the aim of providing the manager with the consequences of different levels of reaction to changing demand levels. The results indicate that the techniques presented are most readily applicable to inventories of physical items rather than services. The analysis shows rapid response and the damping of random fluctuations to be of an opposing nature.
