Abstract:

This Note reports on the first years progress on a project to develop a prototype methodology for assessing the effects of varying certain logistics policies and resource levels on the peacetime material readiness and wartime sustainability of the U.S. air forces, in order that support resources may be better planned and justified during the annual Planning, Programming and Budgeting System PPBS exercises. Part I of the Note is an introduction, including a discussion of the logistics systems the authors are attempting to present in their methodology. Part II describes the extensions they have made to Dyna-METRIC. This section also includes a brief description of the version of Dyna-METRIC they modified. Part III discusses the AWARES model, including how it works, how it might be used, and its current status. Author
