Notes
  • Time-based item fill rates, or "channel" fill rates, are the building blocks needed to evaluate steady-state compliance with time-based customer service agreements. Exact computation of channel fill rates is both difficult and time-consuming, yet their accurate assessment is essential for system-wide inventory optimization. We describe and validate a practical method for computing channel fill rates in a multi-item, multi-echelon service parts distribution system. A simulation study is presented which shows that, in a three-echelon setting, our estimation errors are very small over a wide range of base stock level vectors. A more accurate, though less efficient, approximation method is also evaluated for comparison.
