Abstract : A problem was posed as to discuss efficient stock-piling of 40mm shells. There is, in fact no data from which emergency requirements can be deduced. A figure has been quoted by Army authorities that E rounds per month are required during an emergency. The size of the emergency stock pile will depend upon the difference of the normal peace time production, and also on the time taken for the crash programme of emergency production to come into fulfillment. In addition the delivery time from factories to the stock piles is also kept in view.
