The transient behavior of a generic military capability under wartime environment was analyzed and, under certain assumptions, a Wartime Sustainability Model (WSM) was developed analytically using various stochastic and inventory techniques. A simulation of the WSM was also developed to incorporate variations for repair policies such as repair prioritization and limited repair capability. these variations are extremely difficult to model analytically. the adequacy of these two models were verified using a numerical example. Finally, the feasibility of using OPUS-8, a steady-state spares optimization model developed by Systecon AB, Stockholm, Sweden, as an approximation to the analytical version of the WSM for the case of no repair capability was also investigated.
