  -Inventory Game
  Faced with an inventory of a single product with random demands, the student must make decisions regarding when to place replenishment orders and how much to order. The goal is to minimize the cost of running the inventory. The costs include inventory holding costs, costs related to shortages and costs for placing replenishment orders. Two models are provided. One assumes shortages are backordered, and the other assumes that shortages result in lost sales.
