The industrial mission of Destroyer Tenders (AD) and
Repair Ships (AR) is to provide intermediate level
maintenance and repair for supported ships. The Tender and
Repair Ship Load List for these ships (AD/AR TARSLL)
designates the range (number) and depth (quantity) of repair
parts to be carried to support this industrial mission. This
thesis details the logical reasoning and mathematical theory
used to develop the 1977 AD/AR TARSLL, including an analysis
of the data development, the mathematical inventory model
and procedures used, and various assumptions and constraints
applied during the process. Actual demand history for the
six AD/AR 1 s in the Atlantic fleet for a two year period from
1977 to 1979 was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the
load list. The effects of certain assumptions in the model
on the load list were analyzed. The proposed changes for the
1980 TARSLL were incorporated in the 1977 TARSLL and
evaluated. Also, alternative models and methods of load list
development were proposed and evaluated.
