Abstract:We consider a spare parts stock point that serves an installed base of machines.
Each machine contains the same critical component, whose degradation behavior
is described by a Markov process. We consider condition based spare parts
supply, and show that an optimal, condition based inventory policy is 20% more
e cient on average than a standard, state-independent base stock policy. We
further propose an e cient and e ective heuristic policy
