Abstract:

This study suggests a method whereby during the initial two year demand period, the maintenance factor of each part is adjusted to reflect the general shape of the aggregate replacement curve of all the parts of the given system. This curve along with its arguments usage rate, rolled up usage, age appear to be dependent on the mission andor design of the weapon system. By replacing the adjusted MF into the demand weighted forecast algorithm cited in DoDI 4140.42, a much improved forecast algorithm was derived. Author
