Abstract : This thesis is a study of the Marine Corps Level-of-Repair Model (MCLOR) and the Navy Availability-Centered Inventory Model (ACIM). The objective is to test the linkage of these models to obtain a specified operational availability (Ao) at minimum investment cost. An example equipment (AN/PRC-68) is utilized as the test problem to demonstrate the ability of the two models to be linked together to provide a desired Ao at least cost. This was done by submitting data from MCLOR outputs to the ACIM model. The ACIM data is subjected to sensitivity analysis by changing key system parameters (MTBF, MTTR, Repair Path). A side-by-side comparison of the results is provided.
