This study provides a cost-based analysis of preventive maintenance and administrative storage for the U.S. Marine Corps medium tactical vehicle replacement (MTVR). In the years 19952013, the Marine Corps acquired approximately 8,750 MTVRs as overseas obligations increased. As the current conflicts wind down and the Marine Corps returns to lower force levels, the Marine Corps will see excess capacity in its MTVR fleet. This study begins the process of finding a solution to managing this excess capacity. Based on net present value analysis for various combinations of continued preventive maintenance and storage of excess vehicles over their life cycle, this studys findings contribute to determining the most cost effective method of handling the Marine Corps MTVR fleet.
