the total quantity in the Unit Per Weapon Per Day column.

represents the total amount of each of the items in the Types of Rounds or Items column.

Here is an example of how to compute PWRMS.

Using Rifle, 5.56mm for USARPAC, in Appendix B (page 28) we find that the total

authorization per weapon is 126 rounds. Of these 126 rounds, 36 are A066 Ball, 72 are

A071 Ball, and the remaining 18 are Tracers.

Now try to solve the following situations.

the DOS authorized is 60.

We determine that the ER is 75.441.

The correct amount is figured like this:

WD

x

ER

x

DOS

=

PWRMS

500

x

75.441 x

60

=

2,263,230

We determine the amount to be 861,000.

The correct amount is figured like this:

WD

x

ER

x

DOS

=

PWRMS

500

x

28.7

x

60

=

861,000

without fuzes?

We determine the amount to be 792,300.

The correct amount is figured like this:

WD

ER

x

DOS

=

PWRMS

26.41

x

=

792,300

These stocks are earmarked and designated to support US forces requirements. Probably the

most common operational project for an active theater is the Barrier plan. Barrier materials are bulk-

allocated items that are allocated to an active theater based on total personnel strength. The bulk-

allocation formula is--number of personnel times ER times number of days divided by 1,000.

Now try to solve the following situation using Appendix B, Page 34.

personnel strength of 82,462, for 30 days for M21 antitank mine.
