The purpose of this thesis was to develop a model depicting a days of supply DOS and implement it through a computer program LOGDOS meaningful to both operations and logistics personnel for command post exercises or wartime use. LOGDOS Logistics Days of Supply was specifically designed for Air Force units having a flying mission. However, the model could be utilized in other units, after identifying a meaningful measure of merit. Following a literature review, a model was developed and implemented using dBASE III, RR Report Writer, and Clipper. The developed program, LOGDOS, was then pretested, tested, and validated. The program meets the sponsors needs, and includes many improvements suggested by the sponsor unit during testing and validation of the program. LOGDOS is easy to install, easy to use, and does not require user knowledge of any of the software development tools such as dBASE III or Clipper. LOGDOS operates on a IBM-compatible microcomputer with 640K RAM, one hard drive disk drive, one 5.25 floppy disk drive, a monitor monochrome or color, and an 80-column printer capable of continuous form paper.
