Abstract

Namit and Chen recently created two algorithms to solve the <Q,r> inventory model for gamma lead‐time demand without using tabulated values. However, other less complicated solutions that do not require the use of tabulated values are currently available. This note demonstrated the relative simplicity of those solutions and discussed some practical considerations.
