The AMC Inventory Research Office IRO has been involved in the development of multi-echelon inventory models for Army applications for the past several years. During research for a study for the Joint Logistics Review Board JLRB by IRO, several significant advancements were made in multi-echelon modelling. Subsequently, several more were noted by IRO in the literature and were put to use. This thesis summarizes the multi-echelon work done at IRO with particular emphasis on the efforts which originated with and followed the JLRB study. Philosophy of analysis is emphasized more than mathematical derivation. The techniques are exact where possible.
