The study was motivated by performance concerns. Readiness problems associated with newly fielded systems are relevant to both combat effectiveness and public perception. When new equipment comes into the Army, it is often fielded on a unit-by-unit basis. This is true whether fielding an entirely new weapon system like the M777 light-weight howitzer or an upgrade of a weapon system such as the CROWS (Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station). So the "initial" fielding can take many years. Prior to the initial fielding, the program manager works with the vendor to develop initial parts lists for sustainment — commonly called push packages. Although new equipment fielding typically occurs over time, empirical demand data from the earliest fielding are not systematically used to update the push package. This report demonstrates the feasibility of using demands from earlier fieldings to improve push packages as equipment is fielded to successive units.
