Abstract:

The Seaborne Mobile Logistic System SMLS defines operational procedures and allocation of resources for the logistic support of a Marine Corps Landing Force ashore from a seabase afloat. In evaluating the SMLS approach, ground maintenance of Marine Corps end items of an Amphibious Task UnitMarine Amphibious Unit ATUMAU and an Amphibious Task GroupMarine Amphibious Brigade ATGMAB is considered independently because of its effects on requirements for amphibious shipping and large resources. A computer simulation model of the maintenance system was developed to demonstrate the feasibility of, and to determine the requirements for, performing maintenance under SMLS. A users guide to the model has been documented separately.
