The K-1 Tracked Vehicle (K-1 TV) has been the main battle tank of the Republic of Korea Army (ROKA) for the last twenty years. Maintaining the highest level of combat readiness of the K-1 TV is one of the most critical missions for ROKA logisticians. This research focuses on the improvement of the depot level maintenance (DLM) since it has considerable influence over the combat readiness of the K-1 TV. A simulation model of the DLM process has been built. Four major logistics elements are the input parameters: component failure rate, repair rate, inventory service level, and logistics delays. The model with these logistics elements is simulated for the acquirement of data and the results provide guidance about the interactions of logistics elements. The analysis of the results shows the effective procedures and the significant elements during DLM of the K-1 TV. In conclusion, the procedures of the analysis give valuable insights related to the methodologies of analysis of the logistics elements and facilitate logisticians to conduct the efficient logistics support.
