A MODEL FOR EVALUATING FLEETS OF TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT,
RAND CORP SANTA MONICA CALIF
Pagination or Media Count:
A Monte Carlo model is described which can be used in evaluating the capability of both actual and possible transport systems to meet the airlift demands of the U. S. military establishment. The model includes peacetime flying activities, wartime deployments, and the transition from peace to war. Transports fly through a simulated route structure according to rules determined by aircraft and load characteristics and by random elements of wind, temperature, and aircraft maintenance. A fleets performance is judged by its cumulative delivery, over time, of materiel and personnel to a specified combat zone. The model thus helps in making comparisons among different transport fleets. It can also be used to detect bottlenecks in a particular transport system. Author
