Abstract:

This report presents an alternate method for controlling the inventory levels of items within the Direct Exchange system. This control method operates according to a relationship of the demand, and the repair and supply levels. Comparison testing of the present controller and the proposed controller shows that the proposed controller is more sensitive to rate demand and repair variations than the present controller and can prevent the cost of large inventory shortages.
