Methodical approach to determine the gamma-percentage resource of aggregates and units of forklift trucks

  • 1 Agricultural Academy, Sofia


Increasing the efficiency of machine usage for transport services in agricultural holdings can be achieved by creating stocks of aggregates and units in company warehouses based on a predetermined gamma-percentage of available resources.
This study proposes a methodical approach to determine the 80% of gamma-percentage resource for forklift elements, considering both known and unknown distribution laws for their resources. It includes truncated and repeatedly truncated samples.
The results obtained from this study can be utilized for planning purposes and establishing stock levels to ensure the operational readiness of Bulgarian forklifts.
