Abstract:

The Supply Readiness Diagram, a readiness assessment technique is derived and demonstrated. The technique is based upon pipeline model theory and the relationship between Expected Backorders, Spare Parts Stock Levels, and Expected Pipeline Quantity determined by repair times and break rates. A comparison between traditional data dependent pipeline model results and those determined from MICAP levels and stock levels is made. The report concludes that although pipeline models beginning with break rate and repair time data may have a place in the analytical world, readiness assessments in this way have not proven correct as presently implemented. The Supply Readiness Diagram is a much more reliable and simple technique for readiness assessment.
