Abstract:

In an article entitled Internal Control Evaluation How The Computer Can Help David C. Burns and James K. Loebbecke presented a computer simulation audit approach for evaluating internal control. In their article Burns and Loebbecke applied their simulation approach to evaluate an illustrative manufacturing inventory internal control system. This thesis presents two alternative mathematical approaches for solving the BurnsLoebbecke inventory problem The two mathematical approaches presented are compared and the unique conditions necessary for the application of each approach are discussed.
