Abstract : Wholesale provisioning models are considered. The performance measures used are: supply material availability, mean supply response time, and availability. These measures are optimized subject to a budget constraint. The performance constrained budget minimization problems are also solved for the optimal allocation. The basic method used is dynamic programming. (Author)
