Abstract : During provisioning for the FBM Weapon System Support, the Navy buys initial outfitting stock for the ship's allowance, stock for the submarine tender load list and spare parts for system backup at the depot level. DODINST 4140.42 established new policy for stockage criteria and the determination of requirements for secondary item spare and repair parts, beginning with provisioning and continuing through the demand development period. This study investigates the impact of the new DOD policy on FBM Weapon System logistics support and operational readiness. The NAVSUP proposed Variable Threshold Rule is also evaluated. Alternative policies are compared in terms of impact on: (1) mission capability, (2) refit effectiveness, (3) investment levels, (4) tender workload, (5) transportation system, (6) CONUS workload, and (7) CONUS response time.
