ARMY LOGISTICS MANAGEMENT CENTER FORT LEE VA
Pagination or Media Count:
Techniques are described for determining the relative military essentiality rankings of repair parts. The methodology, which is adapted for U. S. Army use from similar methodology developed for the Navy by the George Washington University Logistics Research Project, makes use of questionnaires to determine effects of part and component failures on operability of the end item. Methods for translating questionnaire responses into relative essentiality rankings are described along with results of applying them to the Baker Rough Terrain Forklift. Comparisons are given of how these rankings, if available, would have affected a number of logistic decisions in which part and component essentiality should play an important role. The report also contains state-of-the-art surveys on development and application of Military Essentiality measurements and on methods for scaling Military Essentiality Codes. Author
