Abstract:

This thesis proposes a method for setting inventory levels for a suite of spares for a ship subsystem. The method extends the one proposed by Judge and Leutjen which uses a computer simulation model called TIGER to modify the levels of shipboard spare parts determinated by a sparing model. By combining TIGER and the Availability Centered Inventory Model ACIM, one of the coordinated shipboard allowance list COSAL models currently used in the U.S. Navy, our method is able to achieve the same level of operational availability for ship systems at less cost. Keywords Inventory control Theses Simulation Spares Operational availability Reliability.
