StrategyPage has an interesting inventory-related article: Why The World's Largest Vending Machine Matters. Typical soda machines on a carrier's hangar deck might need to be replenished several times a day. The new VIB machine is 3 times larger than a commerical machine, so might need replenishment only once per day.
I wonder what the cost-per-replenishment is on an aircraft carrier?
