Inventory management is the branch of business management that covers inventory planning and control. For this reason, we are considering the use of performance indicators in continuous control models specifically for inventory management of perishable products. Indeed, the high rate of deterioration of food products under ambient storage conditions calls for specific storage conditions in the store or at the consumer's premises to slow the rate of deterioration. This article presents a multi�level inventory management model for melons. The melon chain comprises a non-linear programming model, formulated and evaluated in CPLEX, which minimizes the total cost of inventory in the chain formed by a wholesaler, hypermarket, retailer and resellers in order to calculate the optimal order quantity and total cost of melon for each actor.
