Determination of Buffer Stocks


Its size depends both on lead time and variation in demand.

Situation where demand rate varies – B.S = (L.T)*(Max. demand rate-Av. Demand rate)

When both L.T & D.R varies – B.S = (M.L.T*M.D.R)-(A.L.T*A.D.R)

When only L.T Varies – B.S = (M.L.T-A.L.T)*D.R

Lead time is the time gap between placement of an order and the time of actual supply.

L.T=Servicing time + delivery time + receiving time
