Models of Inventory Management in Multi-level Distribution Systems
The analysis of perspective directions of development of logistical integration allows to establish the importance of the formation of mechanisms of management of integrated logistic functions, and also functional complexes. The complexity of the problem is determined by the variability of the types of interaction between levels in the investigated multi-level distributed systems, which in turn result in the variety of models of inventory management. They can be divided into three main subgroups: the first is with independent processes, the second is with coordination and the third – integrated models.
