dc.description.abstractThis thesis provides a proof of concept for a method that relates changes in the number of Marines available to perform maintenance to the average time motor transport equipment remains in maintenance at the organizational command level. This thesis uses a discrete event simulation model of the workflow of first- and second-echelon maintenance actions at an organizational level ground command, less supply support. While the author models the maintenance systems based upon ground commands from First Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF), the model is applicable to a variety of such commands across the Marine Corps. The method includes determining a range of staff levels to include in the optimization model using the workload evaluation method developed by Rex E. Nelsen in 2010. The optimization model produces outputs that allow planners to select optimal staffing levels based upon the objective function and constraints of the model. After analyzing the outputs of the primary and secondary responses, a staffing level is selected and applied to a single experiment that allows for assessment of risk of not achieving the objective. Inter-arrival time, processing time, work schedule, entities per arrival, and number of maintainers represent the primary factors of the model.
