Abstract:

A model is defined to account for an inventory system which carries items that are subject to repair after use, wearout or failure and then reissued. Such a system is called a repairable item inventory system and, important as such systems are to military applications, have received little attention in the scientific literature. A repairable item inventory system would be trivial if it were not for the fact that a used item may not be repairable due to excessive damage either before or during attempted repair and hence new items must be procured from time to time to replenish the system. This report determines decision rules for this dual problem of repair and procurement in a deterministic model.
