Abstract
Mathematical expressi onsare derived for the operational availability of a system having a finite number of standby spare components. The availability expressions are then used in a decision criterion for the selection of items to be stocked to support units on extended missions with no resupply capability. Various algorithms for determining how best to allocate constrained resources so as to maximize system operational availability are examined. Comparisons with the current Navy shipboard allowance list policy reveal that large potential savings in resources or better supply effectiveness could result from implementation of the procedures of this report.
