RE-ORDER POINTS (THE CALCULATION OF PREFERRED RISKS)
SHIPS PARTS CONTROL CENTER MECHANICSBURG PA
Pagination or Media Count:
Safety levels at the Ships Parts Control Center have been set such that the risk of a shortage over the procurement lead time is 15 for all items. Expressed conversely, we have set safety stocks to yield an 85 protection against system-wide stock outs. The motivation for this is a Bureau of Supplies and Accounts policy decision--somewhat obscure in its origin--which set an effectiveness objective of 85 for the SPCC. It is our purpose here to investigate what improvements might be made within the limitations of that decision.
