Nouha Ghorbel,  Sid-Ali Addouche,  Abderrahman El Mhamedi,  Younes Boujelbene
In this paper we give a comparative overview on research works dealing with replenishment policies. Following recalls of the inventory control concepts, a recent literature review is given relating to spare parts. Cited works are classified into two categories, those who consider inventory control as statistic and the others, as dynamic. For each category, works about economic order quantity and lot sizing methods are given. The previously cited research works deal with replenishment policies for continuous and periodic review systems. We gave an importance to the works that consider the uncertainty on the parameters such as demand for spare parts, availability, lead-time, etc. For each section, a recapitulative table of the cited papers is given.
Keywords- Replenishment, inventory control, uncertainty, economic order quantity, spare parts.
