Pagination or Media Count:
The report describes empirical studies of demands placed on Army overseas inventory control centers by their customers and a methodology developed for constructing variable statistical safety level VSL tables suitable for use by ICCs. The methodology considers variability in both demands and in the overseas order and ship replenishment times. Relationships are developed for forecasting demands variability, measured in terms of percent error, based on item characteristics. VSL Tables are constructed for the Korean and European Theaters.
