Abstract : The Replacement Unit/Repair Level Analysis Model (RURLAM) was developed as a part of PROMP-70--Program for the Refinement of the Materiel Acquisition Process in 1970. This was a program pursued by the Army Materiel Command aimed at improving the materiel acquisition process. One of the tasks under PROMAP-70 was to reduce the requirements for logistics support resources and systems changes by integrating the elements of logistics support into all phases of system acquisition. The Army Management Engineering Training Agency (AMETA) was asked by the Integrated Logistic Support Division of the Directorate of Maintenance, Army Materiel Command, to define the parameters and design an analytical model for determining an optimum replacement unit and repair level of a weapon/equipment system while considering tactical deployment, system availability, and reliability.
