Abstract : By the year 2000, the U.S. Navy's inventory of air launched missiles is expected to triple. With the current impetus to reduce Department of Defense spending, NAVAIR (Code 418) has focussed attention upon the logistics requirements for air launched missiles and is currently seeking a more efficient, cost-cutting maintenance strategy. Presently in the conceptual stage, a Request for Information (RFI) has been drafted by NAVAIR to be distributed to interested contractors in an effort to determine the feasibility of an omnibus maintenance site. This thesis explores those issues relevant to the RFI and attempts to provide a non-biased structure from which the responses to the RFI may be evaluated. Keywords: Theses; Cost benefit analysis; Decision making; Trade off analysis.
