Abstract
The provisioning cycle within the Canadian Forces is reviewed in the paper. Initial provisioning is discussed within the framework of logistics support analysis. Data requirements and optimization techniques (such as METRIC) are explored, as well as experience with these techniques on major weapon system projects in the CF. Reprovisioning for major weapon systems offers a different set of problems. Performance measures (availability, service level, etc.) play a key role. The application of these concepts in the CF is discussed.
