#### Abstract

A single echelon supply chain model problem, consisting of a store with known inventory and shipping capacities, a known delivery delay or lead time and a random demand for a product at the store is formulated as an optimal control problem. In the practical case when only current and past demands are known, using the concept of one step ahead optimal control, the problem is reformulated as the mathematical programming problem of maximizing economic value added (EVA), subject to the dynamics and constraints, such as inventory size. Illustrative examples are given and performance indices are proposed to evaluate the performance of the proposed controller, which exhibits good efficiency and no bullwhip effect.
