Abstract : Currently the Navy is faced with one of its most severe budgetary constraints in recent times. All programs and policies are continually subject to review to determine if greater improvement in dollar utilization can be achieved. Of growing concern to Navy management is the large amount of funds invested in shipboard inventories of repair parts. While the computation of shipboard allowance lists is now somewhat routine, further refinement is desirable to ensure maximum cost effectiveness. In this regard, the shipboard allowance list computation procedures are described and the concept and objectives of military essentiality coding are investigated. The application of military essentiality coding and the inherent problems created within the present shipboard system are discussed. In conclusion, the author recommends some variations to the present shipboard military essentiality system. (Author)
