The U. S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (USA-CERL) has developed a facility maintenance prediction model for the Department of the Army. This simulation model will predict the actual activities required to maintain Army facilities, schedule all occurrences of the activities over a 10-year planning period; and calculate all labor, equipment, material, and dollar resources required to support the maintenance plan. The computer model is machine-independent and currently resides on two different personal computer systems. This model can also be applied to nongovernmental organizations for maintenance planning. The model has been applied at ten installations to calculate resource requirements. This paper presents the model and the results of the housing study.
