Abstract:

The Seaborne Mobile Logistic System SMLS defines operational procedures and allocation of resources for logistically supporting a Marine Corps Landing Force ashore from a seabase afloat. A maintenance computer model to demonstrate the feasibility of, and to determine the requirements for, performing maintenance under SMLS is developed. The report describes the technical and operational aspects of the simulation. Procedures for computing measures of effectiveness MOEs, availability of the landing-force end items, and utilization statistics of the maintenance system are presented. Monte Carlo techniques, queuing procedures, and generation of failure and repair times are discussed as they are used in the model.
