This paper considers an inventory system responsible for repairable equipments located at several operational sites, each in different area. When a failure occurs at the operational site, spare parts are required. We analyze a multiple-supplier inventory system that includes an internal repair shop that offers several modes of repair with different repair times and an external supplier of spare parts. The network model of the problem presented here efficiently solves the problem for deterministic demands that vary over time with backorders taken into account.
