This paper presents the possibilities of using systems for inventory management in metallurgy. It contains characteristics, definition, classification and functions of these systems. The article is divided into four main parts - introduction, methodological background, case study and conclusion. In chapter case study is designed and applied algorithm used to simulate the process and evaluation the economic efficiency of the best-known ordering systems in their use for ordering and replenishment of electrodes in electric arc furnace. The investigated systems include fixed order-quantity method and the fixed order-period method, whose main advantages and disadvantages of use are summarized in the conclusion.
