Three large hospital-based stockless inventory systems are described. First, the method of stockless inventory is described in some detail and differentiated from the just-in-time (JIT) method of inventory management. Second, three hospital case studies involving successful stockless systems are summarized and evaluated. Finally, some important implications for the implementation of stockless inventory systems are summarized for hospital management.
