This study examines the effect ofa Point of Sales (POS) type of military supply system on the readiness of a typical Republic of China infantry battalion. The study compares the current system against the POS-like system. Chapter II is a background ofthe current supply system and the alternative system studied in the thesis. Chapter III develops a stochastic model to generate parts availability probability values for the support of three types of equipment assigned to a battalion. Chapter IV uses these probabilities to populate a decision tree for the determination of which system will increase the readiness of the battalion. A GAMS Program is used in Chapter III to generate the probabilities for support and a Decision Support Program (Data) is used to develop the decision tree and for the analysis of the results. The results were that without considerations of cost savings that may be realized in such a system the POS system produced a small increase in the readiness ofthe battalion. Chapter V presents the author's conclusions and recommendations for a more detailed and rigorous study ofthe proposed alternative supply system.
