Abstract:

The JCAP Item AcquisitionProduction Trade-Off Model is a computerized decision model written in the FORTRAN, MPSX, and COBOL computer languages. The model is designed to develop an optimum cost-readiness relationship for an end item considering all available trade-off options that might meet requirements specified by logistics guidance. The model uses integer programming to identify specific optimum cost-readiness points either by maximizing readiness for a given cost or by minimizing cost for a given readiness. This volume contains A detailed description of the input variables required to run the programs, how the variables are entered on the input cards, and how the cards are arranged in the deck Output information available from the model A sample problem with input and output and Appendices with additional information on data collection to include definitions, sources, and coding documents.
