Abstract
In any capital equipment purchase, the determination of the amount necessary to spend on spares to provide adequate operational support is a problem usually requiring considerable study. However, at early stages in the acquisition program (long before the initial provisioning conference is held) some rough estimates of this spares cost is needed. This estimate often is given as about 20-30 percent of the cost of the end item. The purpose of the study was to determine if this estimate could be refined in any way.
