Abstract:

This is an impact analysis of major changes made to the stockage policies of the Air Force Standard Base Supply System in December 1981. These stock leveling techniques changes were required by Department of Defense Directive 4140.44, Supply Management of the Intermediate and Consumer Levels of Inventory, and the supporting Instruction 4140.45, Standard Stockage Policy for Consumable Items at the Intermediate and Consumer Levels of Inventory. Existing range of stock computations were replaced by new methodology considering economics of operation as well as demand history. Additionally, existing depth of stock computations were modified. Analysis addressed inventory growth, workload reductions, and mission support statistics. Data indicates that the changes experienced in these areas are at or near the original projections. The new stock leveling techniques should be retained.
