Abstract:

Problems of the robustness of adaptive control procedures against deviations of the empirical phenomena form the assumed models are of high practical and theoretical importance. The present paper studies the robustness of Bayes adaptive control of two-echelon inventory systems relative to erroneous assumptions concerning i the initial control parameters ii the stationarity of the demand distribution and iii the nature of the demand distribution.
