Abstract : Electronic equipments which have multiple models in service create special logistics support problems for the Navy. This thesis concentrates on the management of multiple model electronic equipment at the Naval Electronic Systems Command (NAVELEX). The causes of multiple models include changes in operational requirements, initial design deficiencies, non-supportability of the equipment and incomplete technical data for procurement specifications. Parts support difficulties and the weak information interface between NAVELEX and the Ships Parts Control Center Mechanicsburg (SPCC) are discussed. Recommendations for improving this information flow, reducing the number of models of equipment and for providing required procurement technical data are made. (Author)
