Author presents the main problem in stock management of automotive spare parts – its extremely wide variety of assortment. It is proposed to combine advantages of classic approaches (independent and fully coincident models of stock optimization) within the model of aliquot periods. At the same time separate product groups with similar demand volumes become joint in mutually ordered deliveries, which allows to get the low discrepancies between groups and individual optimums. The method consist of breakdown of products by groups with aliquot order-to-delivery lead time. Author considers the practical example of applying of aliquot periods strategy under the constant demand level. Applied approach allows to decrease costs on 35% vs. the strategy of separate optimization.
