Abstract : This thesis provides an assessment of the existing supply support system for intermediate and depot air-launched missile maintenance. Through examination of the supply support structure, the research effort is directed at determining the quality of supply support being provided to air-launched missile maintenance facilities. The thesis provides conclusions on the performance of the existing supply support system and provides recommendations for improvements in the system. In addition, this thesis develops possible alternative for supply support of the Naval Air Systems Command's proposed Omnibus project which proposes the combining of intermediate and depot levels of maintenance for air-launched missiles. Applicable measures of effectiveness which may be used in analyzing the various alternatives are also identified and discussed. Keywords: Supply Support of Air-Launched Missiles; Supply Support for Naval Air Systems Command's OMNIBUS Program; Intermediate and Depot level maintenance.
