Casey, an intern at Beat The Bookstore (BTB), a local independent college textbook retailer, learns how BTB currently manages their inventory. Being a fourth-year business school student, Casey believes she can help improve the bookstore operation by providing an alternative model to more efficiently manage the inventory. Students must: identify the current strategy used by BTB; chose between three models (Single Period Model, Fixed Order Quantity Model or Fixed Period Model) and explain why their choice is the best one given BTB’s scenario; identify by book type how many books should be ordered; and lastly, determine what elements need to be tracked to determine if BTB is better off using the new approach than their original strategy.
