A review of alternative approaches to inventory theory ( Book )
1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The study surveys the current state of inventory theory, and, so far as practical application is concerned, examines the usefulness and limitations of existing theoretical results. The report does not survey the actual techniques of inventory management employed by commercial or military organizations. We restrict our attention to inventory theory in the generally accepted meaning of the term: i.e., the analysis of problems associated with the control of stocks of physical goods at one or more locations and under various conditions

Dynamic problems in the theory of the firm ( Book )
1 edition published in 1957 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper extends the familiar analysis of the theory of the firm to dynamic deterministic situations. A method for obtaining the optimal time profile of production and sales for a firm facing known demand and cost schedules over n periods is discussed. Demand is assumed to be a function of the price charged during the period, anand costs include direct manufacturing expenses, inventory holding charges, and fixed or setup costs incurred when period production takes place. The purpose is to frame and solve the problem in terms and with techniques familiar to most economists. From a mathematical point of view, the analysis is another application of dynamic programming type procedures. From a conceptual and computational point of view, the approach heavily rests on standard constructs in economic theory, thus potentially offering added insight into the logic of the solution

Economics of the Trade-Off among Reliability, Maintainability and Supply ( Book )
1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This report is one of a series dealing with the economics of choice in complex system development. The first, Reference 4, is basic in presentation and should be read by those interested in the application of production economics theory as it applies to the support field. Another, Reference 8, serves to bridge the gap between theory and the methods of Part II of this report. One of the prime objectives of these studies is the stimulation of interest on the part of the systems manager and the reliability engineer in the potential of certain economic tools to guide decisions regarding allocation of development effort. The text of this report is divided into two parts. Part I presents the economic theory of choice, i.e., how, with given funds, to maximize system availability or how to minimize costs of reliability and maintainability for selected levels of availability. The physical aspect of input-output analysis is first discussed wherein reliability and maintainability are looked upon as the inputs to the output of system availability. Finally, costs of inputs and their value are viewed relative to the decision-making process involved in the physical picture. Emphasis is on the trade-off issue as the basic problem, i.e., how to determine the optimal combination of reliability and maintainability, how to determine the optimal combination of component, subsystem, and system availabilities

Various properties of the poisson distribution ( Book )
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A table is presented of properties of the Poisson distribution which have been found useful in working with a variety of operational models. In particular the properties proved useful to the authors in obtaining explicit expressions for inventory levels, backorders, and stockout costs under various assumptions concerning the lead time distribution and penalty functions. Some of the relationships are almost immediately obvious; but were included in the paper for the sake of completeness
