Computing Optimal (s, S) Inventory Policies
A complete computational approach for finding optimal (s, S) inventory policies is developed. The method is an efficient and unified approach for all values of the model parameters, including a non-negative set-up cost, a discount factor 0 \leqq \alpha \leqq 1, and a lead time. The method is derived from renewal theory and stationary analysis, generalized to permit the unit interval range of values for \alpha . Careful attention is given to the problem associated with specifying a starting condition (when \alpha
