Abstract : This study evaluated (1) alternative techniques for computing AS (SSN) tender load lists and (2) alternative range and depth criteria unique to the La Maddalena based tender load list. The various alternative test loads were evaluated, using actual demand for a 90 day period. The models were evaluated in terms of units, requisitions, and range effectiveness. It is recommended that (1) the AS (SSN) load list be built with a demand-weighted units short optimization model for equipment-related items and a demand-weighted requisitions short optimization model for nonequipment-related items and (2) the La Maddalena site tender load be built using the full demand forecast vice a factored demand for depth, with the range cut increased from four to six or eight. It is also recommended that there be separate goals for Depot Level Repairables, equipment-related items, and nonequipment-related items. (Author)
