Abstract : The paper surveys the inventory control problem in pure inventory systems and the detailed scheduling problem in the job shop and assembly line environments. Conditions under which inventory control systems may be substituted for production scheduling systems are briefly reviewed. The paper concludes with a discussion of the difficulties in integrating (production scheduling) inventory control systems with detailed scheduling systems. (Author)
