Manufacturers make production decisions and carry inventory to satisfy uncertain demand. When holding and shortage costs are high, carrying inventory could be even more expensive for acapacitated production system. Recent developments in information technology and sales strategies enabled firms to acquire, collect, or induce advance demand information. We address a periodic-review, stochastic, capacitated, finite and infinite horizon production system faced by a manufacturer who has the ability…

IMPACTS OF ADVANCE DEMAND INFORMATION IN MULTI-CLASS PRODUCTION-INVENTORY SYSTEMS
Demand information can easily be shared in advance with the use of the latest technologies in the supply chain. Advance demand information can be used to compensate demand uncertainty and decrease
Advance demand information and a restricted production capacity: on the optimality of order base-stock policies
TLDR
It is proved, when customer order lead times are less than a threshold value, it is allowed to aggregate the orders over time when establishing the optimal production decision, which implies the optimality of an order base-stock policy.
Replenishment Strategies for Distribution Systems Under Advance Demand Information
TLDR
It is illustrated how advance demand information can be a substitute for lead times and inventory, and how it enhances the outcome of delayed differentiation.
Replenishment Strategies for Distribution Systems Under Advance Demand Information
Customers with positive demand lead times place orders in advance of their needs. A portfolio of customers with different demand lead times gives rise to what we calladvance demand information. We
Inventory management with advance capacity information
An important aspect of supply chain management is dealing with demand and supply uncertainty. The uncertainty of future supply can be reduced if a company is able to obtain advance capacity
ON THE OPTIMALITY OF ORDER BASE-STOCK POLICIES WITH ADVANCE DEMAND INFORMATION AND RESTRICTED PRODUCTION CAPACITY
This paper considers the optimality of order aggregation in a single-item productioninventory problem with advance demand information and a restricted production capacity. The advance demand
Production‐inventory systems with imperfect advance demand information and updating
We consider a supplier with finite production capacity and stochastic production times. Customers provide advance demand information (ADI) to the supplier by announcing orders ahead of their due
Using Imperfect Advance Demand Information in Production-Inventory Systems with Multiple Customer Classes
TLDR
A make-to-stock supplier that operates a production facility with limited capacity is faced with a joint production-control and inventory-allocation problem and the optimal policy is a state-dependent multilevel rationing policy.
Inventory models with uncertain supply
An important aspect of supply chain management is dealing with demand and supply uncertainty. The uncertainty of future supply can be reduced if a company is able to obtain advance capacity

STOCHASTIC INVENTORY MODELS WITH LIMITED PRODUCTION CAPACITY AND PERIODICALLY VARYING PARAMETERS
TLDR
It is proved that modified base-stock policies are optimal for the finite-horizon planning model and for both the infinite-Horizon discounted and undiscounted cost criterion and it is shown that the optimal base- stock levels can be calculated via a simple but efficient value-iteration method.
An Inventory Model with Limited Production Capacity and Uncertain Demands II. The Discounted-Cost Criterion
TLDR
This paper considers a single-item, periodic-review inventory model with uncertain demands, and shows under a few additional unrestrictive assumptions that a modified basic-stock policy is optimal under the discounted cost criterion, both for finite and infinite planning horizons.
A Capacitated Production-Inventory Model with Periodic Demand
TLDR
For a single product, single-stage capacitated production-inventory model with stochastic, periodic (cyclic) demand, the optimal policy is found and some of its properties are characterized and several insights into the model are provided.
Controlling Inventories in Divergent Supply Chains with Advance-Order Information
TLDR
This paper considers a generic one-warehouse multiple-retailer inventory system under continuous review, where customers provide perfect advance-order information, and proposes heuristics to make best use of the available temporal information to allocate items to retailers.

TLDR
This article shows how an optimal pricing-replenishment strategy that balances the costs due to discounted prices and the benefits due to advanced demand information can be determined.
Analysis of a Forecasting-Production-Inventory System with Stationary Demand
TLDR
This work focuses on a modified base-stock policy incorporating forecast information and uses an approximate analysis rooted in heavy traffic theory and random walk theory to obtain a closed-form expression for the (forecast-corrected) base- stock level that minimizes the expected steady-state inventory holding and backorder costs.
Optimal Policy for a Multi-product, Dynamic Non-Stationary Inventory Problem
This paper is concerned with a multi-product dynamic nonstationary inventory problem in which the system is reviewed at the beginning of each of a sequence of periods of equal length. The model has
Dynamic Inventory Policy with Varying Stochastic Demands
A dynamic inventory model is formulated in which the demand distributions may change from period to period. The optimal policy at each stage is characterized by a single critical number which also
Inventory Control in a Fluctuating Demand Environment
TLDR
An inventory model, where the demand rate varies with an underlying state-of-the-world variable that can represent economic fluctuations, or stages in the product life-cycle, for example, is presented.
