This paper considers a multiitem inventory model with unknown demand rate coefficients. An adaptive control approach with a nonlinear feedback is applied to track the output of the system toward the inventory goal level. The Lyapunov technique is used to prove the asymptotic stability of the adaptive controlled system. Also, the updating rules of the unknown demand rate coefficients are derived from the conditions of the asymptotic stability of the perturbed system. The linear stability analysis of the model is discussed. The adaptive controlled system is modeled by a system of nonlinear differential equations, and its solution is discussed numerically.
