Logistics capability assessment models have undergone much refinement recently. The gains have been concentrated in two areas: measurement of logistics performance in operational terms and representation of the special circumstances that distinguish many wartime scenarios. Yet these models remain limited with respect to the effects of widespread uncertainty throughout the system and the forms of management that may be devised to handle them. The Dyna-SCORE (dynamic simulation of constrained repair) model was developed to study many aspects of uncertainty and management adaptation in relation to maintenance functions, and it is directed toward examination of individual repair facilities. Dyna-SCORE has diverse applications in capacity planning, assessment of a shop's ability to support given workloads, and evaluation of alternative operating policies. Its outputs include summaries of job processing times (separated by category of activity), component pipeline contents, backorder quantities, weapon system availability, and equipment utilization.
