Abstract : Control in the management of stocks of retail material (DSA) at Navy stock points is exercised through a centrally administered stocking policy model (VOSL) and funding policy. The dynamic behavior of these controls operating on a stock point was investigated by computer simulation. The simulation results indicate that under the most favorable circumstances, the value of resupply orders directed by the VOSL stocking model exceeded the grants made by the funding policy. Under less favorable, more realistic conditions, the difference between funding requirements and funding grants is more marked and supply performance degrades very significantly over time.
