This thesis concentrates on developing a spreadable model that can be used by Marine logisticians in computing sustainment requirements and the resulting tactical motor transport lift requirements necessary to keep a notional sized maneuver element supported on a daily basis in the Marine Corps projected maneuver warfare environment. Sustainment computations are limited to resupplying the maneuver element with food, water, fuel, and ammunition. Using an "add-in" simulation package the planning factors are allowed to take on a more realistic stochastic nature. From the simulation trial runs, distribution frequencies are generated; thus, enabling the planner to establish various customer service levels. For example, if the stated goal is to support the maneuver element with a minimum of 85 percent of their requirements then it is a simple procedure to analyze the pertinent distribution frequency and establish how many gallons of fuel, water, or short tons of ammunition are required. The major finding of the thesis is the apparent inconsistency of consumption and usage factors used in computing fuel requirements for various end items, e.g, a five ton truck requiring 230 gallons daily compared to a MiAl tank using 86.5 gallons.
