Abstract:

This thesis is a study into expected system operational availability as a function of level of repair LOR and systems spares provisioning. The maintenance and repair cycle for most systems is discussed with concentration on the Navy MIL-STD-1390B Naval Air Systems Command Equipment model AIR which determines the life support cost for various LOR policy alternatives. The thesis then demonstrates how the Navys Availability Centered Inventory Model ACIM may be used to determine the least cost provisioning policy to obtain a desired level of system operational availability for the specified LOR policy in a multi-echelon operation and support organization.
