Abstract:

The report documents a five-year planning model which produces detailed production plans and budgets for the entire Navys Aeronautical Depot Maintenance Program. Using the method of linear programming, the model determines minimum cost workload assignments which satisfy all depot maintenance requirements. Several physical and manpower capacity measures are used to ensure that plans are within the production capabilities of each rework facility. The model allows for multiple shift operations, changes in the size and distribution of the work force, and the assignment of work to non-Navy facilities. A production plan and budget for FY-1974 and various sensitivity analyses are presented to illustrate the models uses.
