This following project describes and assesses the current inventory-stocking model used by Commander Submarine Pacific (CSP) to manage its SSN repair parts stocking levels during a deployment work-up period. We also introduce a proposed demand based inventory management tool called Pacific Regional Inventory Stocking Model (PRISM), and compare it with the model currently being used within CSP. This analysis will then evaluate the effectiveness of each system as a management tool utilizing data from CSP's SSN-688 Fast-Attack Submarines. Decision criteria estimated are operational readiness and cost. The results of this comparison also demonstrate a management tool that optimizes inventory stocking. This will increase an SSN-688 submarine's operational readiness while on station and potentially achieve cost savings through optimizing onboard inventory. Recommendations will be provided, based on the results of the comparison, with respect to the feasibility of implementing PRISM, maintaining CSP's current stocking system, or developing a new submarine stocking system to replace the status quo.
