Abstract—Most organizations have to cope with the short term random movements in supply and demand. In today’s competitive marketplace, achieving manufacturing excellence has become critical for success. This paper examines the behavior of firm over time using system dynamics model as a basis for setting inventory situations. Consay Company Discount Store (in Poland) stocks socks in its warehouse and sells them through an adjoining showroom. The store keeps several brands and styles of socks in the stock; however, its biggest seller is Super socks marketing. A simulation model was created in order to examine the behavior of the inventory model over time. The store wants to determine the behavior of the inventory by using system dynamics (SD). The results of simulation showed that the long run behavior of the company is significantly different, depending on the inventory model chosen.

Index Terms—Behavior, system dynamics, inventory,responsiveness, order cycle.
