Abstract:

The Navys Aeronautical Depot Maintenance Program, at an annual cost of over 600 million, includes the rework of aircraft, engines and components performed at seven Naval Aircraft Rework Facilities, commercial sources, and the rework facilities of the other services. The model produces detailed production plans and budgets for the entire 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 insure 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. Author
