This research analyzes the optimal and most cost-efficient stationing of critical ship parts that will directly support Ballistic Missile Defense (BMD) ships deployed and stationed in Europe. The goal is to inform and recommend to decision-makers where and how many critical parts should be staged to best support the operational readiness of BMD ships on European Phased Adaptive Approach (EPAA) missions. To effectively accomplish this task, the research analyzes eight high-demand, high-dollar value spares that are forward-staged in Sigonella, Italy. Through modeling and simulation, we determine the most effective method to optimize ship readiness in a cost-constrained environment.
