Abstract : A method for narrowing the gap between research in inventory theory and its use in operational systems is presented. It is proposed that a library be established, consisting of self-contained computer routines that can be used in desired combinations by system designers who are not specialists in applied inventory theory. A possible structure of the library is suggested in terms of kinds and scope of routines that might be included. Suggestions are made on how the library might be established and administered. Examples of routines that might be considered for inclusion in the library are presented in appendices. (Author)
