The purpose of this MBA Project is to conduct an analysis of Marine Corps Logistics Command (LOGCOM) proposed Affordability Index (AI) model. This project was conducted with the sponsorship and assistance of LOGCOM. The goal of this project is to analyze the validity and usability of the AI model, and to recommend an alternative solution. The impetus behind the AI model is to view cost-to-readiness and determine the return on investment (ROI) of allocating scarce maintenance funds on system sustainability. The recommended alternative to the AI is a readiness-to-cost model. This alternative model produces a graphical depiction of readiness-to-cost over time. This model allows maintenance managers, commanders, and logistics analysts to conduct trend analysis on maintenance spending and readiness in order to plan and allocate maintenance funds and resources.
