Abstract:

Hundreds of thousands of items of military equipment and repair parts, valued in excess of 13 billion are stocked by the military services and the Defense Supply Agency as war reserves.

This study examines the selection criteria and methods for computing war reserve requirements. It identifies a number of problem areas resulting from the application of current criterion and computational methods. The study results in two principal recommendations.
