Equipment readiness is an essential component in maintaining the Marine Corps as this country's "Force in Readiness". In today's environment of austere funding, improved productivity and reliable budgeting processes are critical elements within the Depot Maintenance Activities. The optimal utilization of available resources is paramount to the enhancement of Fleet Marine Forces equipment readiness. This thesis uses the quantitative techniques of multiple linear regression, survey analysis and linear programming in an effort to model an automated management system for the maximum allocation of resources at the two existing Marine Corps depots.
