Abstract : The Condensed Army Stock Plan Analyzer (CASPAR) Model, developed earlier by LMI, was revised and modified, to permit economic stockage decisions at Army Direct Support Units (DSUs) using a stockout cost imputed from customer specifications of minimum required service levels. The report outlines necessary changes to permit use of CASPAR, including cost-to-hold and cost-to-order. Evaluation of data resources revealed that available DSU data can be used to estimate values of the independent variables, for subsequent use in solution of the multiple regression model. (Author)
