Abstract : This research developed a methodology to expand current War Reserve Spares Kit (WRSK) capability assessment techniques to measure the impact that EOQ(Economic Order Quantity) items have on aircraft readiness using Rand's Dyna-METRIC Recoverable Inventory model. An F-16 WRSK was analyzed using a tactical wartime scenario to evaluate current WRSK stockage policies for EOQ items. The results of this study revealed that the authorized stock levels for some EOQ items were inadequate, thereby significantly reducing the overall readiness support reportedly provided by the WRSK. The methodology developed for this research for this research is applicable to all WRSK capability assessment evaluations. (Author)
