Wacker Siltronic has the majority of its plant capacity consumed at the beginning of a month with forecasted orders or "good will" orders from customers. However, there is typically some left over capacity that enables Wacker to meet emergency short notice orders from customers. The objective of the Inventory Simulation Program is to determine the minimum inventory requirements for Wacker to meet these random orders in a typical month.
