Abstract:

The computer routines, operating manual, and programmers manual for the Bench Repair BR Simulator, the second of four simulation programs constituting the Planned Logistics Analysis and Evaluation Technique PLANET. BR is designed to simulate the operations of the various repair shops on an Air Force base. Either one or many shops can be examined with a single simulation. The simulator takes as inputs the shops operating characteristics and simulates shop operation through time. Performance is measured in terms of repair cycle time and the shops capacity. Outputs can be used as an aid in determining the resource requirements necessary to support repair actions. The Bench Repair Simulator can be assembled to the Availability and Base Cadre ABC Simulator PLANET Part I to examine problems encompassing all base functions As BR simulates field level support, ABC simulates the organizational level. Together, the two models incorporate nearly every facet of maintenance and logistics at Air Force bases.
