Abstract : This report illustrates the use of a particular set of criteria for analyzing logistics models. This set is an expansion of the entries in the data banks at the Defense Logistics Studies Information Exchange, Fort Lee, VA, which are used to prepare 'model abstract' computer printouts and the regularly published 'Catalog of Logistics Models'. The present report in fact illustrates the type of analyses that might be included in a 'Handbook of Models and Source Data' for a few models of major importance. The sortie-generation model of the Logistics Management Institute is the example used to illustrate this approach to model analysis. (Author)
