Abstract : Navy Stock Fund working capital reductions can be primarily attributed to vastly expensive but largely inactive safety stock maintained in a decentralized storage system. By tracing through a statistical method for determining the most economical quantity of safety stock to maintain, inefficiencies in attempting to provide equally high availabilities for all items of stock at local activities are pointed out that may well justify the working capital reductions.
