Development of Models
The first milestone in this work is the creation of a descriptive model of ASR systems. It provides an answer to the first research question Q1: how can automatic store replenishment systems be classified? This model does not claim to include all possible kinds of replenishment systems, as new, revolutionary, decentralized systems may be developed in the future.41 Yet it provides a helpful structure to examine the replenishment systems of today’s retailers. As it is created on an abstract level, its core results can be applied to other industries dealing with piece goods replenishment processes as well.
