Abstract : This thesis describes the analysis used to determine personnel requirements for the Malaysian Armys S61A-4 utility helicopter fleet. We use discrete-event simulation (DES) to model maintenance activities in the Malaysian Army Aviation (MAA) fleet in order to evaluate the impact of maintenance crew resources on helicopter availability. Our model simulates the normal daily operating activities in the MAA environment and includes the size of the fleet, fleet flying operations, and maintenance activities including daily inspection, rectification, and scheduled maintenance. A ranking and selection (R and S) method is used to select the best system or a subset that contains the best system design from the competing alternatives. The outputs of this paper provide the Malaysian Army Human Resource department an ability to allocate the appropriate number of personnel for the new fleet.
