Fair-share Quantity Logic

In inventory management, the process of equitably allocating available stock among field distribution centers. Fair-share quantity logic is normally used when stock available from a central inventory location is less than the cumulative requirements of the field stocking locations. The use of fair-share quantity logic involves procedures that ‘push’ stock out to the field, instead of allowing the field to ‘pull’ in what is needed. The objective is to maximize customer service from the limited available inventory.
