This research effort involves a comparison between the actual repair parts demand data generated by the forklifts at Naval Supply Center, Oakland, California, during calendar year 1975 and the allowance quantities of the applicable allowance parts lists (API's). The comparison is accomplished from three perspectives: the first perspective evaluates the degree of correlation between line items demanded and the line items appearing in the APL's; the second perspective provides a projection of the effect of increased forklift operating hours on the quantities demanded among those demands for line items allowed by the APL's; and the third perspective identifies those line items for which demand generated rendered the quantities demanded significantly different from the quantities allowed by the APL's. As a result of these comparisons and the low correlation between demand data and allowance projections, it is hypothesized that the crucial variable contributing to this low correlation is the low utilization of the equipments in terms of annual operating hours. The conclusion reached is that APL's for forklifts, as presently formulated, are a support planning document of dubious value in situations of low equipment utilization such as observed in this study.
