Abstract : A temporary solution for simplifying the problem of estimating base retail stock levels. Four alternative methods are suggested. All assume that cdemand rates are proportional to some identifiable activity rate. Methods 1 and 4 are reasonably accurate and can be considered for actual use. Method 2 is useful only for clarifying the estimating problem. Method 3 is accurate only as long as demand and resupply time distributions remain constant; it provides no way for forecasting future retail stocks when demand or supply is expected to change. The study stresses the need for further research on interbase demand distributions. (Author)
