(Added) Use an item indenture structure to tradeoff between items at the first level of indenture (i.e., items whose next higher assembly is the weapon system) and items at lower levels of indenture needed to repair those items. In that way, the impact of each item on each level of indenture, and ultimately on the weapon system itself, is portrayed; and the requirement for the highest level assembly will not be based on assuming 100 percent of its lower level assemblies are available.
