Hypotheses of this model are similar to the model of EOQ. It means conditions for decision making is perfect and consumption is constant and price is fixed.

Despite that, the EOQ has restrictions when using the assumptions of fixed and predictable demand, as well as instant deliveries when requested the stock replenishment (SLACK et al., 1997).
Coverage encompasses material properties and manufacturing technologies, such as advances in high-speed milling of metal matrix composites, computer simulation, evaluation of adhesion strength, analysis of structural parameters, heat transfer analysis, wear studies, and processing and characterization of materials; anti-fatigue design technologies and materials, including their effects, fabrication, manufacturing process and models, simulation, dynamic behavior, and tool wear behavior and monitoring; and other topics, such as lean assembly, the status and trends of fixed abrasive polishing on semiconductors, and the application of a fuzzy economic order quantity (EOQ) model to the stock management in the manufacturing system.
