The models for inventory and production are run for long periods of time, sometimes looking at years of inventory across multiple sites. Different strategies are tested for forecasting, production, and warehousing. The scope and objectives of the analysis vary, but customer service level is always measured as the success criteria.

Examples of inventory modeling include complexities such as production scheduling, comparisons such as make-to-order vs. make-to-forecast, various forecasting methods, safety stock calculations, vehicle loading planning, and number of warehouses.
