Abstract : An investigation was made of possible linear relationships between several specific factors concerning ships of the Navy and the actual repair part consumption dollar figures for a two year period for the purpose of using such relationships for planning and budgetary aids. Factors considered included steaming hours, fuel consumption, overhaul schedules and overhaul mandays, and ship age. Overall Navy-wide linear models were developed for NSA (odd cog) stock numbered items, for APA (even cog) stock numbered items, for Other (odd cog) manufacturer's part-numbered items (items without a Federal Stock Number assigned), and for a combined overall repair part model. In addition, some of the same models were developed for the Pacific and Atlantic fleets and for certain ship types. (Author)
