There exists almost no academic source that deals directly with automatic store replenishment systems at retail store level. Yet, even if theory cannot provide direct answers to the research questions, it is fruitful to consider the presented practical problem from different theoretical perspectives in order to obtain new impulses for this research project. Therefore, four theoretical research sources are addressed below in detail to verify, what contribution further theoretical streams can offer. The literature research focuses on sources dealing with inventory management, logistics and operations management, business IT and contingency theory (see Table 2).
