In the present study, Sintering Plant of Isfahan Steel Company was selected to be investigated. The inventories of this plant were categorized using the concepts of the VED and ABC methods.
Two kinds of raw materials were found as the most important ones. The model of the supply of these materials with optimal consumption composite and the total cost of logistics, properties of suppliers and the buyer company was designed as a model of Mixed–Integer Non-Linear Programming type.
