Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to structure a model for an inventory system carrying items that are issued to fill customer demands, are repaired by the system after use, wearout, or failure and then are subsequently reissued. This system is called a repairable item inventory system. Since all used items are not economically repairable, new items must be procured from time to time to maintain the system. The deterministic model adopted treats the repair and procurement problems simultaneously and develops inventory decision rules for repairable items. (Author)
