C U S T O M E R S E RV I C E 31 The importance of these dates varies from one market to another and one company to another. There are so many dates and potential monitors, that companies have to choose which ones are important in their own circumstances. Providing too many management controls is confusing and dilutes the important ones. The prime controls would be delivery on time measured as ‘7–2’ and ‘7–4’. The difference between the customers’ request for delivery and expected delivery dates (2–1) is their perception of lead time.

The minimum should be the safety stock and the maximum occurs immediately after a delivery. If the stock falls to safety stock level before delivery then: Average stock = = (max. 6. 1 The ‘minimum’ on some systems is set to the review level for triggering resupply even though the stock continues to fall below this level until the delivery arrives. Here, the ‘minimum’ is the lowest average stock level immediately before delivery. 6 In order to reduce the average stock, therefore, there needs to be a reduction in either ᭹ ᭹ order quantity, or safety stock.

Consider a case where there are two demands for an item, one which is past the due date and one which is to be delivered on time. In such circumstances, the availability target calculation requires us to fulfil the current order, not the old one, since the current one improves the availability factor, but the other has already failed. In practice there is normally a need to give precedence to customers whose delivery is late. Therefore a more rigorous measure of availability would be to measure how many orders are late and how late they are.
