The DoD Inventory Reduction Plan (IRP) was mandated by Congress in May 1990 to meet the challenge of re-sizing Defense inventories while maintaining the gams in readiness resulting from the defense strategy of the 1980's. This thesis is an evaluation of the effects of implementing the IRP on Navy inventory management practices at ASO, and on readiness at NADEP Alameda. G management (GMAN) reports and supply effectiveness data provided by FISC Oakland were utilized in making overall readiness and level of service determinations. The Navy's organization and major management initiatives relating to the IRP are also discussed. Finally, an assessment is made of what is currently being done by the private sector to reduce inventory levels whether application of these systems and/or practices can be by the military to reduce secondary item inventory levels.
