In this paper, we present a two-stage kanban control model to study a two-echelon hybrid inventory system with disposals. We then express the expected cost function for the inventory system in terms of the performance measures obtained from the analysis of the kanban model. Finally, we present the results of a series of experiments that are conducted to measure the impact of the kanban sizes on the expected total cost of the system.
