Abstract:

The process of modifying a simulations model for supporting stockpile reliability program SRP analyses of a tactical missile system is described. Basic application of the modified simulation to SRP analyses is discussed. A methodology for supporting degradation trend analyses by predicting future performance is developed. Examples from an ongoing analysis are provided. It is shown that this is a valuable tool with significant growth potential. Model programming and system design considerations that should be incorporated early in program development in order to optimize future applications of the methodology are discussed.
