A mathematical model is developed for determining an optimum submarine tender load list for the POLARIS (FBM) weapon system. Military essentiality of spare parts and the stowage capacity of the tender play prominent roles in the development of the model. The measure of all effectiveness which is maximized is the average number of demands filled over a given period of time. This is equivalent to minimizing the number of stockouts of an item. An example of the use of the model is included for the case where the demand for items is characterized by the normal distribution. The paper includes a paper flow chart and program to aid in implementing the model.. The authors wish to express their appreciation for the assistance and encouragement given them by Associate Professor Julius H. Gandelman of the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School. The authors are also indebted to Miss Patricia Hoang for her assistance in programming the model on the CDC 1604 computer.
