The Pakistan Air Force PAF uses Forward Operational Bases Deployment Kits, a version of War Readiness Spares Kit in the USAF. This kit stocks repair components required to ensure uninterrupted supply support during operational exercises and war deployments. This study was designed to evaluate the existing PAF Deployment Kit by applying the Dyna-METRIC inventory model. A literature search revealed that the Dyna-METRIC Microcomputer Analysis System DMAS, developed by the Dynamic Research Corporation for use on personal computers, was a suitable tool by reason of its usefullness, economy, and greater chance of application in the PAF. The model was used to analyze a representative kit of 75 line items to study effectiveness of stock levels required to generate an optimum number of sorties and to ensure the availability of a greater number of Fully Mission Capable aircraft throughout the period of deployment. The study successfully identified required stock levels, recommended deletion of excessive inventory, and also proposed additional levels in the kit of problem parts, the parts most often required to prevent the grounding of aircraft.
