We already encountered in §23 an inventory model with continuous review. A Poisson demand was assumed. It was shown that under this special assumption the optimal order quantity D is the same as that in the deterministic model with a constant demand rate. D was obtained using the Wilson formula. The interpretation of the objective function C in the stochastic sense led to the method of state probabilities.
