  2. 2. OSCE STATION - VACCINEIn a primary health centre monthly requirement of DPT is 280 doses. Lead time (timebetween ordering of new stock and its receipt) is 1 week. a. Calculate what should be the buffer stock 1 b. What should be the minimum stock level (reorder level)? 2 c. What is the maximum stock level? 2Buffer stock serves as cushion or buffer against emergencies, major fluctuations in vaccinedemands or unexpected transport delays. (25% of monthly requirment for vaccines and 10%of monthly requirement for syringes). DPT buffer stock should be 25% of 280 = 70Minimum stock level (reorder level) is the the least amount you should have in stock, usuallyexpressed as weeks/ months of supply. It is the amount of stock you will have between placingand receiving an order plus the buffer stock. Since lead time is 1 week, the minimum stockshould be 1 week requirement i,e 280 devided by 4 = 70. Buffer stock is 70. So, minimum stocklevel is 70+ 70 = 140.Maximum stock level is largest amount of stock you should have, usually expressed as weeks/months supply. It is minimum stock plus amount of stock used between orders. 140 + 3 weeksstock of 210 doses. (1 week stock is 280 divided by 4 = 70. So 3 weeks stock is 70 multiplied by3 = 210.).Maximum stock = 210 + 140 = 350 doses.
