Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to validate the feasibility of applying the Miniature Dyna-METRIC inventory model for segmenting Air Force War Readiness Spares Kits WRSK. WRSK segmentation is an authorized USAF policy designed to allocate the often large thirty support day WRSKs into smaller subsets this technique reduces the initial airlift support requirement, as well as minimizes potential loss or damage to critical wartime sustainability resources. The study had two basic objectives 1 Validate Miniature Dyna- METRICs segmentation predictions against the results of the 1987 HQ Tactical Air Command F-15 combat operations exercise, Coronet warrior. 2 Design a Users Guide for the base-level WRSK manager to explain and apply the automated WRSK segmentation experimental design. A sample WRSK of sixty-one spares drawn from the Coronet Warrior exercise and an unclassified operational scenario were input into the model in an attempt to calculate the quantities required for three experimental WRSK segments. Two sets of spares failure rates were applied, the D029 worldwide average and the adjusted failure rates resulting from Coronet Warrior. The models predictions were then compared against the spares usage data from Coronet Warrior. Theses.
