Citation to the referred articles, books and other resources have to be provided

Eg. Bijulal et al. (2011) discuss the variation in

service level and average system

cost within the stable setting of parameters. The variation of service level varies in a three
echelon system has recognisable pattern of variation (Bijulal et al.; 2009). Disney and
Towill (2004) explain

the importance of smoothing replenishment policies to reduce

bullwhip. In a vendor managed inventory system, the effect of backlogs in receipt of


ordered items can be eliminated (Disney and Towill 2002).
