Abstract:

Better estimates for the process of initial stock level determinations are sought. Factors are developed for families of items based on the generic noun name. They are classified into sub-families based on application as denoted by the first two digits of the Component Identification Number. The personnel of the Inventory Control Point can apply these factors to new items of the same type for the same or similar application unless some known reason would dictate otherwise. Standard statistical techniques are utilized to establish the degree of confidence associated with the factors produced for use in the Initial Provisioning Process.
