Models and Techniques for Recoverable Item Stockage when Demand and the Repair Process are Nonstationary - Part I
Provides an integrated approach to inventory performance measurement for a given stockage allocation for systems with nonstationary demands and service rates. 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. Provides models for different degrees of cannibalization of primary recoverable items. Describes a group of scenario-dependent performance measures for predicting the effects of inventory and service policy on organizational performance. Reader will require a knowledge of probability theory.
