Pagination or Media Count:
The MORTALITY CONCEPT describes how a population deteriorates and what is needed to maintain a population. The populations considered are populations, or families, of spareparts needed to support military weapon systems. The mortality concept is explained and used to delineate the necessary resulting behavior of families of spareparts.

A generic model is sketched and sample calculations are provided to allow the reader to arrive at firm conclusions about the necessary behavior. Author
