* Provides a broad overview of modeling approaches and solution methodologies for addressing inventory problems, particularly the management of high cost, low demand rate service parts found in multi-echelon settings * The text may be used in a variety of courses for first-year graduate students or senior undergraduates, or as a reference for researchers and practitioners * A background in stochastic processes and optimization is assumedWe will study a variety of multi-echelon service parts systems in subsequent chapters. For the most part, the analyses that we will present in these chapters are based on approximations of the probability distributions for key random variables.
