ABSTRACT
The goal of the investigation is the quantitative identification of a barrier in the functioning of a certain inventory system whose input is a non-aggregated process controlled by the parameters of the functioning of the transport subsystem and the parameters of the process of product supply to storage. The authors derive equations that define relations between the distributions of conditional probabilities for the case of an upper-limit barrier in subsystem L and those parameters.
