The U. S. Marine Corps realizes its goal of being ready to fight in any location primarily through the Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU). An important component of the MEU's readiness is the availability of critical equipment repair parts when they are needed. We test with three sets of past MEU data an availability based sparing model that builds repair parts blocks and show that the model outperforms the current methodology in every case.
