Delia Villanueva Jaquez, University of Texas at El Paso


This thesis presents a new Performance Based Logistics optimization model. Performance Based Logistics (PBL) is becoming increasingly important for manufacturers in mission critical environments that need to provide ultimate product availability at the lowest cost and with the highest level of customer satisfaction. The U.S. Department of Defense has mandated that Performance Based Logistics programs be adopted by its major weapon systems and equipment suppliers, is one of the newest support strategies to improve the weapon system readiness. This work presents a new multiple objective evolutionary approach that simultaneously optimizes objectives such as Reliability, Maintainability and Total Cost for Ownership. These objectives are based on procurement, operation and maintenance components of the Total cost of ownership.^
