Abstract:

Shortages of items in use often occur in operating systems where the component units are located at distances from one another. A specific recoverable item is considered for a Navy system in which a stock of spares and a repair facility are located at each advance base. With each repair facility viewed as a queueing system, expressions for the expected number of back orders for the total system are derived. A marginal approach is proposed for determining the optimal allocation of spares to each advance base.
