Abstract : This thesis presents a computer program, CAESAR, for IBM XT/AT or compatible computers to compute the logistics demands of a new system in terms of manpower and supply. CAESAR, (Computer Aided Evaluation of Supply and Support on All Repair Levels), uses inputs such as weapon system distribution, system characteristic data and major unit data to provide conclusions about the logistics behavior of failing weapon systems. The modeling of systems behavior with CAESAR has several advantages over the empirical approach. It can be utilized at any major unit level, and it can be used to simulate repair part consumption of weapon systems prior to their introduction into the Armed Forces. Keywords: Logistics, Multi-level support, Support structures requirements.
