Abstract:

This report provides useful information to ammunition managers on a unique set of nine modern computer models specifically developed to support the conventional ammunition management decision processes. The models have been applied in numerous studies at the request of functional managers. They have provided significant contributions to ammunition management in areas of production base planning and operations, in the planning, programming, and budget cycle, in procurement and in other special areas such as demilitarization. The nine models, all of which are operational and available are 1 The Item AcquisitionProduction Trade-Off Model for maximizing item readiness at least cost 2 The Materiel Acquisition Planning Model for maximizing overall readiness within budget constraints 3 The Industrial Preparedness Model for mobilization planning items, components, facilities 4 The Maintenance Model for least cost layaway and maintenance policy for idle facilities 5 The Production Facilities Life Cycle Cost Subsystem for least total cost modernization, expansion and workloading of the production base 6 The Priorities Model for multi-objective management problems economic and non- economic goals 7 The Multi-Bid Evaluation Model for economic analysis of complex procurement actions 8 The Demilitarization and Disposal Model for integrated demil planning and workloading at least total cost and 9 The Ammunition PackagingContainerization Life Cycle Cost Model for evaluation from design through disposal.
