Abstract : This paper presents two types of multi-item deterministic constrained inventory models which relate to the constraints of the equivalent of a direct support unit in the Federal German Army; namely, that there is only a limited amount of space available for storage of items. One is a continuous review model with no stockouts allowed and the other is a periodic review model where backorders are allowed. In contrast to previous models analyzed by Naddor and others, time phasing of the arrivals of orders of different items is allowed. The benefit derived from this phasing is the reduction in the average amounts of on-hand inventory and backorders. Solutions are obtained for the two-item case and the n-item case is discussed. Examples illustrate the results. (Author)
