|Summary||Effectively posturing spares is essential to support forces for Great Power Competition. The purpose of this project is to study the effectiveness of spare posturing strategies towards the improvement of operational availability. Possible strategies for positioning of spare parts include inventory augment and sparing models such as readiness-based sparing (RBS) and demand-based sparing (DBS). An alternative strategy is the use of a depot ship with repair and production capabilities through a combination of subtractive manufacturing and additive manufacturing (AM). The different strategies will be simulated to identify their effect on operational availability and operating cost to improve the readiness of the warfighter.|
