Abstract

We develop a typology for multi-echelon inventory management. The typology is used to classify and review the extensive research of multi-echelon inventory management under uncertain demand. We identify clusters of model assumptions, research goals and applied methodologies. Based on this review, existing research gaps and avenues for further research are proposed.
