Abstract

The inventory control systems are responsible for the optimal operation of the inventory processes of the automotive companies. Generally, the optimisation of the inventory control system manifests itself in a target conflict representing the implementation of the optimal operation in economic and reliability terms. For the process optimisation, the control parameters of the regulation system should be defined. Their actual settings determine the time of placing orders of auto parts and the required quantities for the optimal operation of the processes defined above. This article presents a particular method of exploitation of the opportunities provided by the computer aided simulation and the genetic algorithms for the optimisation of inventory control systems applying classical inventory mechanisms.
