Abstract:

The USMC Replacement and Evacuation Program is a system of replacing Fleet Marine Force major combat equipment on the basis of fixed ageuse criteria and evacuating the worn equipment to 5th Echelon for eventual reissue after repairre build. Analysis of the relationships between either use or age and equipment unserviceability indicates that these criteria used along are in accurate predictors for replacing individual equipment. The administrative procedures adopted to overcome the effect of using these criteria for actual replacement have vitiated the advantages of the program.
