dc.description.abstractSpares Acquisition Integrated with Production (SAIP) is a technique for obtaining economies of scale in spares acquisition by placing orders for spares concurrently with other customer's orders for items requiring the same, or similar, materials and processes. Coordinating such procurement actions to optimize savings, particularly replenishment actions, can be a difficult and time consuming process. The difficulties involved in implementing the technique raise questions with respect to the utility of the technique in achieving savings, the circumstances, if any, under which it should be used, and whether a process can be developed to make implementation of the technique easier and more systematic. This thesis explores these questions from a Naval aviation perspective and concludes that the technique is worth the effort, but some processes used to implement it are of questionable value. A revised transactional model that builds on an earlier prototype process is offered as a possible alternative for achieving more systematic SAIP savingsen_US
