Abstract
The Marginal Analysis Stockpile Planning Program (MASPP) was developed to augment the Canadian and NATO Stockpile Planning Process. The aim of MASPP is to assist in finding the best, balanced mix of munitions based on Military tactics in multiple simultaneous scenarios to satisfy the defeat criteria with minimal risk of running out of ammunition. It handles multiple simultaneous scenarios. It is munitions-oriented, so it handles Air, Land and Maritime munitions equally. Thus, MASPP satisfies the two goals of the moratorium placed on NATO Stockpile Planning Guidance in 1998. MASPP has been used by the Canadian Air Force and Navy and through bi-lateral agreements nine nations were provided with training on the use of MASPP during the winter of 2000/01. The MASPP Graphical User Interface, computational algorithms and national data files were provided to the remaining NATO nations during the Spring 2001 meeting of the NATO Stockpile Planning Working Group as the Canadian J4 Logistics' solution to the stockpile planning modelling problem.
