Abstract: For the severe problems of high inventories, high cost of distribution, goods-stopping, disorderly delivery and distribution lag in retail chain, a multistage inventory control system based on Multi Agent System(MAS) is established and simulated on NETLOGO. It solves two widespread problems in retail chain multistage inventory. The unrealistic optimization algorithms because of hypothesis, and the unsolvable formula because of overmuch variables. In the area of optimization of multistage inventory and research on modeling and simulation of MAS, this system can reach consensus in one step.
