Abstract
When a major weapons system is deployed, a quantity of spare parts, known as a pack-up kit, should accompany it so that some repair by replacement capability is possible if a replaceable unit should fail. For a given sample of replaceable units, the original PACMAT computer program determined the quantity of each item to be included in a pack-up kit to meet cost and/or availability requirements for a given deployment. PACMAT has since been revised to be more user-friendly and the format of the output has been improved. As well, a graph of availability vs dollars spent is provided for forecasting and trend evaluation.
