Abstract : The report outlines a procedure for stocking a loose issue operation in such a way that replenishment costs are minimized. The basic principle is that of giving preference, within the limits of available space, to those items for which a small amount of space will contain a long-lasting supply; thus reducing the number of bin replenishments required for a given number of issue documents. This provides for the largest possible size of a bin replenishment so as to make best utilization of materials handling equipment. (Author)
