Inventory control in environments with seasonal demand
Paper i proceeding, 2009

In the traditional reorder point model no consideration is taken to seasonal variations in demand. In the research presented in this paper an extended reorder point model capable of taking such consideration has been developed and tested by simulation. Potential benefits of using the model has been assessed and discussed. The paper also presents rough guidelines for the practitioner regarding when to use the extended model rather than the traditional one.
