System availability and cost constraints imposed on tactical weapon systems necessitate corresponding care in the design and implementation of their associated maintenance management systems. It is necessary to forecast maintenance manpower staffing levels required to ensure consistent system performance within operational goals, and to perform comparative analyses of total program costs, including supportive resources. Examples of the constraints and types of rules imposed on a resource allocation system designed for application to the SAFEGUARD Ballistic Missile Defense System is described. Based upon these rules, a computerized management system is designed which meets maintenance planning and operational requirements. Author Modified Abstract
