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 General background information to assist in understanding the environment for which the model is intended A mathematical description of the model A description of how the model is exercised and An appendix with computer source listings.
