Abstract
LASS is the result of a research project to develop a computerized decision system designed to deal with all aspects of the military mission scaling problem, i.e. to determine the kit of spares to carry in order to maximize the operational availability of the supported weapon system, subject to various constraints. A measure of operational availability which takes into account the military essentiality of parts and the mission utility of the weapon system is devised. It is shown that, under reasonable assumptions, the number of spare parts required during a mission is a random variable following a Poisson distribution. These two results are exploited to elaborate a normative model which can be used to solve the problem.
