Abstract : Like its predecessor LOgistic Cost Analysis Model (LOCAM), the LOGistic Analysis Model (LOGAM) provides a unique tool for the evaluation of alternate support postures for Army equipment. Tradeoffs are made on the basis of cost and availability. Enhancements to LOGAM include the addition of four additional maintenance policies which permit LRU repair at the equipment level. LOGAM also provides the ability to include operational costs for a particular theater of operations and these should be based on the TOE for the theater under consideration. As with other tools of this type, the validity and usefulness of the analyses performed are to a great degree dependent of the skill of the analyst in its application. The LOGAM program is specifically structured to perform logistic analyses in maintenance support and operational situations for a diversity of operating equipments.
