Abstract : This thesis analyzes a new wholesale depot level repairables replenishment model proposed for implementation by the U.S. Navy. The new model uses the total investment level as its measure of effectiveness with a mean supply response time (MRST) goal as a constraint. In addition, the new model requires that procurement and repair order quantities be specified as input parameters. The importance of the model is that it relates resources to readiness, an area of primary concern to the model is that it relates resources to readiness, an area of primary concern to Congress and the Department of Defense. Tests with actual data were conducted between the current Navy repairables model and the new model. The results of these tests indicate that new model would consistently out-perform the current model for investment levels and system material availability (SMA). Keywords: Theses; Navy supply systems; Mathematical models.
