Binomial moments of the time-dependent and limiting distributions of inventory deficit are derived for a continuous-review (s, S) inventory system under the assumption that interarrival times, demand sizes, and lead times are independent sequences of independent, identically distributed random variables. Explicit expressions for the limiting distribution are also given in some special cases of practical interest. The approach used follows that of Finch  who investigated the system under the additional assumption of unit demands.
