Asymptotically-optimal component allocation for Assemble-to-Order production-inventory systems

Haohua Wan, Qiong Wang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider component allocation in Assemble-to-Order production-inventory systems. We prove that asymptotic optimality on the diffusion scale can be achieved under a continuous-review policy. We also show that in many systems, meeting this optimality criterion requires component reservation.
