Title: Pricing Analytics for Reusable Resources

We consider the problem of pricing for reusable resources, which are items that can be consumed and reused afterwards such as hotel rooms, cloud computing, shared vehicles, and rotable parts. We develop a model to maximize a combination of profit rate, market share, and service level, which also captures the special dynamics of reusable resources. We prove that a static pricing policy achieves strong performance guarantees compared to a fully dynamic pricing policy. We also discuss the a large scale implementation of our pricing model at at Dassault Falcon Jet in the context of rotable spare parts.
