Abstract:

This study evaluates the supply performance of a Sparing To Availability STA generated Class IX repair parts stockage list. This STA generated stockage list could be used during either initial provisioning and fielding of a new system or during the replenishment of an Authorized Stockage List ASL. Analysis demonstrated the increased supply and readiness performance when an STA generated Class IX stockage list was used instead of a Standard Initial Provisioning methodology. Additionally, analysis of data demonstrated that STA supply and readiness performance increased when used to replenish an ASL. This study also identified the potential impact that inaccurate, incorrect, or obsolete input data will have during the development of either an STA generated initial provisioning or ASL replenishment stockage list.
