Abstract : This paper is a treatise which discusses the techniques for evaluating logistic support alternatives as applied to the Improved COBRA Armament Program (ICAP). The objective is to develop methodology for generating quantitative data for cost analysis of support of the ICAP including deployment, equipment, supply, maintenance and test equipment factors. A deterministic model is described in terms of its versatility to evaluate many alternatives rapidly and inexpensively to include sensitivity testing. To this end support alternatives are tested to evaluate cost effectiveness and their worth based on quantitative results.
