Currently, there are many mathematical models and tools for inventory management and optimization. Based on the literature review, the authors conclude that inventory management tools and models are mostly one-sided and focused on the cost aspect of the inventory management process. The research goal was to propose a set of criteria for inventory optimization as a basis for the development of an inventory management model whose structure would consider both the economic aspect and the stochasticity of demand and the reliability of delivery. Optimization criteria are based on extensive analyses of influences and correlations between logistic chain subsystems in relation to inventory. The interactions of the subsystems are then mathematically expressed, which represents the main output of the created set of optimization criteria. The defined criteria can be used as a basis for creating a new optimization model of inventory management.


Keywords – Logistics chain, inventory management process, optimization criteria, inventory costs, commitment of funds, stochasticity of demand, delivery reliability, risk of inventory shortage.
