Abstract : The United States Navy is currently implementing a plan to consolidate the wholesale supply functions of the Naval Air Station at Alameda and the Naval Supply Center at Oakland. Improving supply support of the Naval Air Rework Facility Alameda in general and stock availability in particular is a vital part of the plan. Demand forecasting by workload driven material requirements planning (MRP) is being considered as a means to improve stock availability. This thesis begins with an overview of the MRP technique and the current supply support of NARF Alameda. It proceeds with the description and evaluation of a temporary MRP system that is currently implemented and uses it as a background for development of an MRP system that is designed to operate in a maintenance oriented environment in general and at NARF Alameda in particular. Finally, suggestions are made for transition from the temporary to the proposed system. (Author)
