Abstract:

This document provides an integrated approach to inventory performance measurement for a given stockage allocation for systems with nonstationary demands and service rates. It suggests approaches to certain aspects of recoverable item repair and supply that currently cause significant deviation between practice and theory, even in the case of stationary demands and service rates. It also provides models for different degrees of cannibalization of primary recoverable items, and describes a group of scenario-dependent performance measures for predicting the effects of inventory and service policy on organizational performance. The reader will require a knowledge of probability theory. Author
