Abstract : The original intent of the thesis was to develop a revised stocking model that specifically considered a recent technological improvement in the maintainability design of certain weapons systems. This improvement seemed to offer great potential for reduced inventory investment. The Air Force introduced a modular repair concept with the F-111 aircraft in the early 1960's, but no new stocking model had been considered for improving management techniques. In July of 1972 Captain John Muckstadt of Headquarters, Air Force Logistics Command, commenced work on a revised model for solving the problem. The thesis effort was then diverted from designing a new model to the study of Muckstadt's technique and the testing of his model for bias.
