This study was undertaken to determine DOD and Marine Corps objectives and requirements for replenishment spare parts breakout, analyze current directives and procedures, and to prescribe a comprehensive approach for implementing an effective replenishment spare parts breakout program at Marine Corps Logistics Base (MCLB) Albany, Georgia. During the course of this study it was found that (1) the DAR Supp. 6 DOD Replenishment Spare Parts Breakout Program is focused on actions during replenishment while effective break-out is dependent on actions early in the systems acquisition process; (2) DAR Supp. 6 does not provide guidance for acquisition personnel whose actions are crucial to effective breakout; (3) the DAR Supp. 6 breakout process sufficiently captures the factors in the breakout decision but is too complex, and is inefficient for day-to-day use by breakout technicians. The major contribution of this study was the prescription of an effective replenishment spare parts breakout program for MCLB Albany, Georgia.
