Inventory Modeling textbook

    Hello All, I am beginning to build an undergrad course on Inventory Modeling. So far I have had no luck in finding a textbook to user as a basis for the course. Can anyone recommend one (or two or...)?
    Thank you for help,
    Kevin

    Hi Kevin,

    We would be glad to help you. But could you provide more information? For example, what program (Biz, Eng?), what are you expecting to cover in the course. Depending on your needs, OR/MS books would do the trick at the undergrad level.

    Best,

    Iuri.

    Good morning Iuri and thank you for your quick reply. This course is part of our Business Materials Management undergraduate program. My course design would be to lead off with forecasting, then adoption of different types of current inventory models such as EOQ, Retail Method of Inventory, Re-order points and more. This swill not be a math heavy course. I hope this gives you enough to go on. Thank you for your time. Kevin
