Abstract : Factors and variables that influence maintenance for systems and related manpower, personnel, and training (MPT) characteristics were identified in a review of literature. The results of the literature review were used to develop several conceptual models to support early investigation of the potential effects on maintenance MPT characteristics of decisions early in the acquisition process. The models developed include a maintenance demand factors model that identifies the factors that potentially influence system maintenance burden; a maintenance driver factors model that relates the joint, propagated consequences of early acquisition decisions on later system characteristics important to maintenance; a maintenance process model that identifies actions and decisions generic to all levels and types of maintenance; and two acquisition influence models, one for the Accelerated System Acquisition Process (ASAP) and one for Non-Development Item (NDI) acquisitions, that relate the variables in the maintenance demand factors model to events in the two acquisitions processes that can influence related characteristics of the fielded systems. Keywords: Logistics, System acquisition, Logistics support, Maintenance management, Logistics management.
