Abstract : Document describes three maintenance support resource forecasting models. They are the Logistics Composite Model (LCOM), Reliability and Maintainability Model (R&M), and the Expected Values Model (EVM). The objective of this study is to analyze these three models in terms of (a) how they relate to each other, (b) the minimal data requirements of each model, (c) how the models can best be used in the weapon system acquisition process (WSAP), and (d) lastly, whether the models generate roughly equivalent results. In meeting these objectives, all three models are compared in terms of input requirements, method of processing, and output products. Volume I of this paper gives the analytic portion of the study. The results of the equivalence testing for the two average value models are inclued in Volume II. The second volume also contains a final section discussing coclusions from the study.
