This survey-based research identifies the different inventory models in use by multinationals operating in Thailand. Unlike many of the newly industrialized countries, Thailand has received relatively less attention in the international operations management literature. This article highlights key factors affecting the type of inventory systems implemented in Thailand, which can be of value to developing countries making the transition into newly industrialized ones. This study shows that inventory systems in Thailand are affected by the type of production, location of the multinationals' headquarters, demands, supply base, and the extent to which materials were either exported or imported.
