The Director of the Trident Integrated Logistics Support Division at the Naval Sea Systems Command manages a complex and dynamic budget that supports the provision of logistics products and services to the Trident submarine fleet. This thesis focuses on analyzing the Logistics Division budget and developing a model where the impact of a budget cut can be predicted by employing marginal cost. The thesis also explores the use of regression analysis as a means of forecasting the output of logistics end products. These forecasts are used in conjunction with historical cost data in the unit cost model. Recommendations for further research are included in Chapter V.
