Abstract : This report describes a computer based model of the maintenance process for the HARPOON missile system. The model was developed as an aid to the Navy in assessing its ground support equipment needs, especially during the coming years as the size of the HARPOON fleet increases simulation models for each of the weapon stations, Concord and Yorktown, have been written in GPSS, and during execution, these programs send output to a program which performs statistical evaluation and prepares an output file. The user accesses these programs through a special interface program. This report reviews the maintenance process, discusses the assumptions in the SEA program, provides a user's manual, and recommends actions for maintaining and updating the computer code.
