Abstract:

Upon the outbreak of hostilities, it is anticipated that deployed U. S. ships and those immediately ordered to sea will experience a period when support will only be available from onboard material from Combat Stores Ships and other Mobile Logistics Support Forces. To prepare for this possibility, a projected demand based material requirements is computed annually to support surface ships in a geographical area for a stipulated period. Currently, the Fleet Material Support Office, in determining the load list for Atlantic Fleet Combat Stores Ships, uses a model to calculate the depth of stock, by line item, within a selected range of items, to obtain a projected supply effectiveness goal for this stipulated period. This thesis presents an alternative method marginal analysis model of calculating this load list for the Combat Stores Ships and evaluates and compares the two models. Author
