Abstract

The major aim of this paper is to provide a solution to one warehouse and N retail-ers problem with uncertain demand. The ‘static-dynamic uncertainty’ strategy is used. The objective function is to mini-mize expected average total costs in-curred by the total system comprising of retailers’ replenishment cost, retailers' inventory holding cost, warehouse’s re-plenishment cost, warehouse's inventory holding cost and lost-sale cost. We use integer-ratio policies. We generated 15 samples for each 5 retailers by using ProModel simulation software for Heuris-tic I and Heuristic II. The results of sto-chastic model compared with the devia-tion from optimum solution for these dif-ferent heuristics.
