Some studies in the multi-echelon inventory systems literature have used a negative binomial distribution to approximate a critical random variable arising in the model. Graves (1996) developed a multi-echelon inventory model with fixed replenishment intervals, where each site follows a base stock policy. He proposed in the one-warehouse, N-retailer case a… CONTINUE READING
