We consider single-stage, single-product Make-to-Stock systems with random demand and random service (production) rate, where demand shortages at the inventory facility are backordered. The Make-to-Stock system is modeled as a stochastic fluid model (SFM), in which the traditional discrete arrival, service and departure stochastic processes are replaced by corresponding stochastic fluid-flow rate processes. IPA (Infinitesimal Perturbation Analysis) gradients of various performance metrics are… CONTINUE READING
