This thesis provides a parametric analysis of three models for direct delivery by a Naval Supply Center (NSC) to a Naval Air Rework Facility (NARF). The models include both scheduled and unscheduled deliveries. Parameters which were studies included the ratio of delay cost to delivery cost and the probability of a repair part being demanded by a component undergoing repair. The decision variables were the time between deliveries for scheduled deliveries and the number of units of an item delivered for unscheduled deliveries. The impact on the decision variables of varying the parameters was the major focus of the analysis. The results of the analysis suggest that scheduled delivery is a good direct delivery strategy for an NSC to use in supporting a NARF. However, the analysis has shown that the expected total cost for all three alternatives is very close. Therefore, the final criterion for which alternative should be chosen is essentially ease of usage and implementation.
