Performing Spares Optimization
The AvSim module may be used to simulate the effects of different spares holding levels on lifetime costs. The user sets site and depot minimum and maximum values for all selected spares. When performing a spares optimization run AvSim will try spares holding values within the specified range only.
The program performs simulation runs for each combination of spare part holdings (between range values) for each selected spare part. Once all the simulation runs have been completed AvSim will display the optimum spare holdings from a cost viewpoint at site and depot.
