Abstract : Alternative wholesale provisioning models for secondary items are developed. The models allocate optimally a given provisioning budget with such objective functions as units short, supply material availability, mean supply response time and availability. The models allow the inclusion of essentiality weights to discriminate component criticality. A procedure is also discussed for determining the minimum budget required to satisfy a specified level of performance. (Author)
