Abstract: This is a discussion of the factors to be considered in determining whether shelf stock or specials should be used on special and routine work. The terms shelf slock and specials obviously require definition- There are basically four ways a company purchases material: (1) By a description based on a national standard, such as A.S.T.M., A.N.S.l., S.A.E., or A.P.I., which has a precise meaning to everyone concerned. (2) By a general description of a widely produced ilem, qualified by each vendors catalog number. (3) By an individual vendors description of his own proprietary item. (4) By a detailed description formulated by the purchasing company, which is usually accompanied by a detailed drawing or sample.
