Abstract : The report records the progress in developing usage rates for application at the various echelons in the Navy Supply System. They are needed to accurately determine the repair parts to be carried by the individual ship, aboard the supporting tenders, and ashore. Historically back-up parts requirements were based on replacement factors estimated by engineers or technicians. Usage rates are based on data available at the various echelons. The study compares the various rates developed, applies statistical tests, and suggests additional research to improve the accuracy of current usage rates. (Author)
