This thesis develops an inventory model for repairable items which integrates the shipboard protection level into the wholesale stock level computations. It uses mean supply response time MSRT as its measure of effectiveness and provides methods for computing either the required wholesale stock level given a MSRT goal or for minimizing the system MSRT subject to budgetary constraints. Examples are provided which demonstrate the benefit of not batching for repair or procurement and the benefit of reducing repair turn around times. In both instances the benefit realized is a reduction in the number of each item required at the wholesale level to achieve the desired MSRT goal. keywords inventory models, repairables, multi-echelon models, mean supply response time.
