This also implies that many specific components32 would be thrown away (according to our assumptions concerning the limited time window for sales and the lack of any salvage value of unused components). The stochastic model. instead, increases production of specific component c3, which is needed to support assembly and sales of A l : even a small amount of component c4 is produced, in order to support the least profitable end item A2, which helps in using common components when sales are low for other end items.
