Abstract

Reorder point determination is one of issues in inventory management. A reorder point is a trigger of timing in the replenishment. The reorder point is generally determined based on an allowable probability of stockout. The conventional design of the reorder point is frequently based on the assumption that demand is independently and identically distributed and then follows a normal distribution. In a real situation, it may be unbelievable that daily demand is identically distributed. Also, the assumption of normality for demand is not always appropriate. In this study, the decision procedure of the reorder point by using the limited demand information such as expectation and variance for demands is proposed. The reorder point meeting the specified allowable probability of stockout is derived by using some probability inequalities. Then, the usefulness of our proposal is shown through some numerical simulations.
