Abstract : This thesis assesses the ability of the Marine Corps to effectively manage backlog of maintenance and repair (BMAR) and predict future maintenance and repair requirements. The current Marine Corps real property maintenance program is evaluated along with the BMAR model used by Headquarters, Marine Corps. In addition, the methods and models used by the Department of the Navy, Department of the Air Force, and Department of the Army for predicting maintenance and repair requirements are examined. The thesis includes the results of a field questionnaire which focuses on the actual operations at Marine Corps activities. It also identifies the factors which cause BMAR to increase and alternatives to using BMAR as an indicator of real property condition.
