Abstract

Even in a deterministic setting, nonlinearities can yield unexpected dynamic behaviours in a production and inventory control system, such as sustained oscillations or limit cycles. Describing function in combination with simulation is used to analyse the effect of discontinuous nonlinearities

greatly limit the relevancy and/or rigour of the published results.
