AAM is a Readiness-Based Sparing (RBS) optimization model that computes the least cost mix of spares to achieve a given system availability target. It can also be used to provide the most effective spares list given a constrained budget. It is a standard Air Force model for computing peacetime replenishment spares and has been used to estimate spares requirements for various acquisition programs. It is used for Readiness Based Sparing (RBS) IAW DoD 4140.1-R, which mandates use of RBS where feasible for organic weapon system provisioning requirements. The model is available in a desktop implementation that provides database management and reporting capabilities.
