Abstract : The purpose of the study is to analyze the impact of the constraints and constraint equations that are applied to the Economic Order Quantity equation of the UICP (Uniform Inventory Control Point) of the Navy Supply System. The study shows that the equations used to constrain the Economic Order Quantity should be changed both because of the interrelationship between some of the constraints and because of the questionable theoretical/practical value of others. An alternative to the present formulation is offered. (Author)
