Abstract:

The Army has millions of dollars tied up in Class XI inventories at the company level. We describe the costs and benefits of consolidating these inventories within the Forward Support Battalions FSB Assigned Stockage List ASL. We show that consolidating at the FSB reduces the overall variance in demand for many of the inventory lines and allows the brigade to stock lower quantities of these lines, while maintaining essentially the same service levels. Potential savings to the Army exceed one and a half million dollars for the 3rd Brigade Combat Team alone.
