Abstract:

The study demonstrates how, in a supply system, the inventory stock levels needed for a specified level of customer service vary as a function of the requisition lead time and pattern. The study presents a practical method to determine the savings in inventory holding cost made possible by reducing requisition lead time for problems involving several million different line items. The approach developed was applied successfully to the peacetime military overseas resupply problem involving over 200 supply distribution points with more than two million different line items.
