Abstract : The major Assemblies Model is a multi-item, two echelon model. It determines, by means of mathematical optimization techniques, how many of each component to stock at all units within a two echelon environment. The stockage levels are calculated by determining the potential impact of each item backordered on weapon system downtime. The final stockage quantities are determined by the level of weapon system operational availability that is to be achieved. This model has been developed to compute stockage for major assemblies in USAREUR (US Army Europe) at the corps and division levels. However there are no mathematical nor operating procedures that would prevent using the model in other logistic structures. This model has been programmed on an IBM Personal Computer (PC) to facilitate the development and evaluation of the stockage procedures.
