The Marine Forces Reserve (MARFORRES) comprises mainly 'citizen-soldiers' who are required to operate across a broad spectrum of military operations at extended distances to support the Marine Corps missions. In recent years, the accountability and readiness scores for MARFORRES units have been declining. There have been previous studies endorsed by MARFORRES G-4 to develop a value model for the Supply and Maintenance Team (SMAT) inspection program through the analysis of a stakeholder-derived objectives hierarchy. This thesis expands upon previous work by focusing on the following: 1) review of the existing value models to ensure they reflect the true value of the SMAT inspection program, 2) validation of the value models to articulate the contributions that the SMAT inspection program provides to MARFORRES mission, and 3) demonstration of the utility of value models for resourcing decisions in a budget-austere environment. MARFORRES can use the value models to revise its inspection policies to focus on value-driven inspection rather than mission-driven inspection. This will help to maximize the total value of SMAT inspection to the MARFORRES mission.
