Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors deals with a two server (s,S) inventory system with positive service time, positive lead time, retrial of customers and negative arrivals. In this system, arrival of customers form a Poisson process, lead time and service time are exponentially distributed. The system starts with S units of inventory on hand. Each arriving customer is served a single unit of the item by any one of the servers. When the inventory level reaches s, an order is placed for (S-s) units. If the inventory level is zero or both servers are busy, then the arriving customer goes to orbit and becomes a source of repeated calls. Assume that the capacity of the orbit is infinite.
