Determination of stock level requirements by the depot requirements computation system determines the quantity of assets to be procured and forwarded to base activities. Uncertainties exist at both the base and depot level concerning the ability of the depot requirements computation system to generate stock levels commensurate with the needs of base activities. The authors selected forty B-52 stock number items which exhibited recurring Mission Capability MICAP incidents. With these stock numbers, both the depot and base requirements computation systems were examined to determine whether the depot could compute levels necessary to support base needs. Multiple linear regression models were constructed for both systems using eight major factors of the depot requirements computation system. After examining the treatment of the variables in the multiple linear regression process, the authors concluded that the base repair cycle requirement variable was a driving factor in each of the models. The authors compared the actual base requirements against both the actual depot system and the model developed concluding that the depot system overall computes levels in excess of base needs. Author
