A well-known result in Bayesian inventory control is: if lost sales are not observed, the optimal Bayesian inventory level is no less than the corresponding myopic case, that is, the decision-maker should “stock more” to acquire the knowledge of demand. However, we find that when the stockout demand can be satisfied by some substitute product with a probability, the optimal Bayesian inventory level is less than the optimal myopic inventory level. Especially, we use the concept of unnormalized probability to considerably simplify the dynamic programming formulation.
