Abstract:

The maintenance optimization model is a computer simulation program designed to help determine optimal maintenance configurations and resource requirements for the maintenance subsystem of the Seaborne Mobile Logistic System SMLS. In the model, failurerepair cycles for each end item in the Landing Force are simulated over the period of a specified mission, using event generations, queuing, and Monte Carlo techniques. Measures of effectiveness such as utilization statistics for the maintenance system configuration and availability of the end item in the Landing Force are computed. In addition, the effect of the maintenance configuration on the availability of end items in the Landing Force and on requirements for resources such as operational readiness floats ORF, maintenance personnel, and tool sets, kits, and special equipment can be examined. The report contains a description of the computer program for the Maintenance Optimization Model, a users guide for the program, a listing of the program, and sample output.
