Inventory Menu
The add-in places new items under the OR/IE menu. Choose Add Inventory to create the inventory definition on the worksheet. The Optimize command is used to construct optimization models of multi-item systems. The System command builds systems of inventory components. The New Functions/Buttons command is necessary when a worksheet is opened that contains functions created by the add-in on a different computer. In order to see the results on the demo workbook, you will have to choose this command first. This must be done for each worksheet that contains functions or buttons.

Inventory models all involve some level of abstraction from reality. The first abstraction removes all statistical variability from the situation. Thus we call these models deterministic. The next page considers the single product deterministic models.
