Abstract
The improtance of stockpiles in waging and supporting war has been recognized by the military. However, despite this recognition, very few theoretical attempts have been undertaken to incorporate stockpile consideration in land combat models. This paper describes a multi criteria optimization model to estimate the minimum stockpile required to sustain fighting a conventional mobile delaying land battle. By studying the post-optimality analysis, valuable insights on the relationships between the key governing parameters can be established.
