Abstract
The Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Project will purchase 1,500 standard military pattern (SMP) vehicles to support deployable units. One of the tasks of the SMP MSVS variants, a 4.5 ton cargo vehicle and an 8 ton Load Handling System (LHS), will be to transport the stores and equipment necessary to support deployed forces. This study determined the daily stores required by a model organization, computed the minimal number of vehicles required to resupply the unit using various fleet configurations, analyzed the replenishment cycle for these configurations under centralized and decentralized scenarios, and recommended an optimal mix of MSVS LHS and Cargo variants.
