To support the Reports to Congress on the National Defense Stockpile of Strategic and Critical Materials, the Institute for Defense Analyses IDAhas developed a suite of mathematical models and databases known as the Risk Assessment and Mitigation Framework for Strategic MaterialsRAMF-SM. Part of RAMF-SM involves computing potential shortfalls of strategic materials in a national emergency, by comparing estimated material demands with projected available supplies. This paper describes in detail the portion of the RAMF-SM methodology that adjusts the demand and supply values to lessen the possibility of spurious or artificial shortfalls or surpluses due to data quality issues.
