This report describes Version 6 of the Dyna-METRIC capability assessment model RAND developed to support logistics planning. Using information about the planned usage of aircraft, the characteristics of the aircraft components, and their demand for logistics resources, Dyna-METRIC assesses the effects of wartime dynamics, produces operational performance measures, and identifies potential problems. Version 6 improves upon earlier versions by incorporating a more fully developed representation of the repair process and its constraints. It also considers the effects of additional sources of uncertainty and some strategies that might mitigate that uncertainty. The report provides users with a comprehensive description of the model's motivation, capabilities, methodology, and use. A sample analysis based on 30 avionics components of the F-16C/D aircraft illustrates its use.
