Abstract : The Korean Air Force has determined that repairables management is one of the areas in which attention could be expected to lead to substantial improvement in the efficient management of defense resources and in maintaining an adequate level of force effectiveness. This thesis reviews various stochastic inventory models for the management of repairable items and develops an inventory model for the Korean Air Force. It discusses the characteristics of each model, and, identifies and explains the differences in each model with respect to assumptions, objectives, constraints, and optimization methods. Also this research evaluates the proposed model using sample data sets. Keywords: Queueing theory, Inventory theory, Applied mathematics, Computer programs, South Korea. (KR)
