Abstract
The report is intended to prepare project managers to assume their responsibilities pertaining to the procurement of spare parts. It focuses first on data, an all too neglected subject. Next, it introduces some essential idea regarding probability. Then it discusses the concept of criticality of parts to mission capability and also, the need to focus on the most expensive and least reliable items. Finally, it presents four sparing analysis cases; each sucessive case is more general in nature and, thus, more complex. The discussion is non-mathematical. References are cited that explain the mathematics and provide worked-out examples.
