Abstract
The objective of the proposed effort is to develop an ATLAS (Army Transformation in Logistics And Sustainment) environment that provides a unified modeling and experimentation framework for assessing current and future combat systems maintenance concepts, maintenance manpower and capacity planning and soldier load / effectiveness with simulation, tradeoff analysis, data-mining analytics and optimization capabilities. We call this system ATLAS as the effectiveness of the current and future Army rests on the shoulders of its maintenance; standing on its logistics footprint. Furthermore, with this technology, the Army's goals of a 90% Ao (Operation Availability) and a 20% TOCR (Total Ownership Cost Reduction) for existing weapon systems can be pursued in a rigorous fashion and will provide the basis for establishing realistic sustainment specifications for performance based logistics support. The proposed effort involves an accelerated development approach to produce a mature, robust, and proven technology developed through proven technology reuse; extending KBSI's model library for wheeled vehicles, tracked vehicles, and aircraft maintenance process simulation; and in situ technology demonstration and field testing at selected Army depot and field maintenance sites.
