In Chap. 8 we have discussed why and how multi-echelon inventory systems appear in practice, and how the most common ordering systems work. We shall now turn to the problem of choosing batch quantities for a multi-echelon inventory system. Note that this important problem must be solved independently of which type of ordering system we use.
