Abstract : Stocks in a condition code requiring care and preservation before issue represent an investment which cannot be utilized until the necessary work has been accomplished to place these stocks in an issuable condition. Excessive quantities of items requiring care and preservation reduce the supply system's capability to meet customer requirements, are subject to further deterioration, may result in increased investment requirements for stocks, and ultimately reduce unit and equipment readiness. Therefore, maintaining such unserviceables at a reasonable level is a primary logistic objective. Measurements for this LMI are related only to backlogs of work in the care and preservation - processing in storage program. (Author)
