Abstract
The Canadian Forces is not expected to replace the ILTIS fleet until at least 1999. The Directorate Support Vehicle Engineering and Maintenance is studying the costs involved in keeping the vehicles in service until 1999. D Log A was tasked to determine the expected cost of spares for this period, as well as an allocation of the spares required to maintain the fleet at a 95% operational availability given the number and expected usage of the vehicles at each of the bases. The spares needed to give 90% and 95% operational availability were determinedusing ROSAM and are provided. It was recommended that limited spares be purchased. A table showing the optimal placement of the spare at the bases and depots for a 95% operational availability is included.
