Keywords: Retail replenishment, process optimization, RFID, smart shelves.

Stockout situations in the retail industry result in significant losses of revenue. The introduction of automatic product availability monitoring systems for retail shelves suggests a significant reduction of stockouts and lower replenishment process costs. Christian's research focuses on inventory models that incorporate emerging technologies, specifically RFID item-level tagging and weight-sensitive sensors, to optimize the replenishment process based on a total cost function. The development of such technologies reveals further limitations for practical implementation that mathematical models have to account for.
