The objectives of this research are: (1) to examine how the decision is made to use a Non-Developmental Item (NDI) to meet an operational requirement; and (2) to formulate an evaluation model that could be used by the decision maker to determine which support method would be most suitable for the NDI in question. In formulating the model presented in this thesis (the Support System Decision Matrix), actual cases of NDI were studied and; the lessons learned from these efforts were consolidated into a model. The heuristic considers system use factors and system specific factors and ranks the four basic ways to support a system: (1) discard system upon failure (no support), (2) total contractor support, (3) organic support and (4) a combination of organic and contractor support. Keywords: Logistic support; Non developmental item; Decision making.
