An Analysis Regarding the Possibility of Using Fuzzy Logic in Inventory Management

Claudiu-Leonardo Stoia
Published Online: 2014-12-30 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/aucts-2014-0014


The paper presents a brief state-of-the-art survey regarding the use of fuzzy logic in inventory management. Its goal is to motivate enthusiastic entrepreneurs to take into account the benefits of using fuzzy logic inventory control systems. It offers a guide to model an inventory system having a free fuzzy tool as starting point

Keywords: fuzzy; control; inventory; guide
