Abstract : Very few inventory models of the military supply system have been developed that explicitly take into account the effects of the priority system. The priority inventory model of the military supply system is formulated to minimize the sum of ordering and holding costs subject to constraints on the number of backorders allowable by issue priority group. A minimum cost solution of a typical inventory problem of this nature is obtained by computer simulation. (Author)
