REFERENCES: Inventory Management Models : A Tutorial
Most introductory textbooks in Operations and Supply Chain Management offer a good discussion of inventory systems. Inventory functions and drivers, independent demand models, and safety stock calculations are routinely covered in these books. One possible source:

In addition, there are many books that deal exclusively with inventory management, some of which are decidedly more academic in nature than others.
