Inventory Optimization in a Retail Multi-Echelon Environment Inventory Optimization

Rintiya Arkaresvimun

Research Fest 2008

This project developed an inventory model to find the optimal inventory distribution in a retail three-echelon network that enables high target service level at the stores. Using a multi-echelon approach, the optimal network inventory cost can be achieved by low inventory and service level at the intermediate echelon. The study shows the interrelations between echelons that should be considered when developing each echelon’s inventory policy.

The benefits of determining the optimal inventory policy easily extends beyond the retail environment. We’ve achieved great success working with companies in the wholesale and manufacturing segments using our software tool for inventory optimization.
