The aim of this research is to investigate an appropriate model to control the stock of slow-moving items. Ordinary inventory models require probability distributions of demand over a time interval before the control parameter can be determined, hence it is necessary to evaluate the effects of different forms of demand distribution. In addition, Croston's model and the dynamic programming model for the periodic min-max system are also studied with their control parameters being compared with those of the ordinary inventory system.
