Abstract : This study is a cost-benefit analysis of a proposed levels (order quantity and reorder level) calculation for consumable items. The Computation and Research Evaluation System (CARES) III Analyzer was used to evaluate the proposal. The input data consisted of samples of 1H and 1R Cognizance (Cog) items. The criteria for evaluation were Total Variable Cost and Average Days Delay. Since the Navy inputes shortage cost from desired performance and budget levels, the relevant Total Variable Cost is the sum of procurement order cost and holding cost. Supply Material Availability was held constant at 85%. Additional cost projections were obtained concerning the implementation of a variable shortage cost.
