Abstract : The purpose of this research is to determine the mission readiness impact that would result if the allowance levels of Trident HM&E On-Board-Repair-Parts were reduced by 5%, 10%, 15%, or 20%. The dollar value of the reduced inventories is calculated to estimate the potential cost savings to the Operations and Maintenance, Navy (OM&N) appropriation account. The study concludes that reducing Trident HM&E allownace levels up to 20% would have no impact on mission readiness. At the 20% inventory reduction level, the procurement cost savings to the OM&N appropriation for one Trident submarine is estimated to be more than $500,000 per inventory cycle.
