Lot Size (q):
This is the fixed quantity received at each inventory
replenishment. The instance results depend directly on this
quantity. (units) 
Fill Rate (v):
This is the proportion of demand filled immediately
from inventory. The instance results depend directly on this
quantity. (units) 
Total Profit
():
This is the product revenue less the product cost less the
cost the cost of running the inventory. In some cases, the
optimum inventory policy does not depend on product cost and
revenue, so we often set these factors to zero. Then the profit
will be simply the negative of the inventory cost.($/time) 
Inventory Cost
()
This is the cost associated with having an inventory. It includes
the ordering cost, holding cost and costs related to shortages.
Traditionally we select a policy to minimize the inventory
cost.($/time). 
Mean Inventory Level:
This is the average level of inventory over time. (units) 
Mean Backorder Level:
This is the average level of backorders over time. (units) 
Maximum Backorder Level:
This is the total number of shortages during a cycle. This
result is presented only when shortages are backordered. (units) 
Lost Sales Rate:
This is the rate of lost sales. It is only used for models
with lost sales. (units/time) 
Maximum Inventory Level:
We do not show the minimum since it is always 0 for the deterministic
system with no loses. (units) 
Reorder Point (r):
This is the inventory level that signals that an order for
replenishment should be made. For this system, it is the inventory
level for a time L before the inventory reaches the
minimum inventory position. (units) 
Cycle Time ():
The time between successive orders. For this case it is q/D.
(time) 
Mean Residence Time:
This is average time a unit spends in the inventory. By Little's
law it is: (mean inventory level)/D. (time) 
Mean Backorder Time:
This is average time a unit spends in the backorder. By Little's
law it is: (mean backorder level)/D. (time) 
Optimum Lot Size
(q*): This the lot size that minimizes inventory
cost when the optimum fill rate is used. (time)

Optimum Fill Rate
(v*): This is the fill rate that minimizes inventory
cost. (no dimension)
