Abstract:

The purpose of this research project was to develop a computer simulation model of maintenance for a multi-mission RPV. The model is developed with as much flexibility as possible consistent with the expressed desires of the RPV SPO at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. A method of analyzing the output of the simulation to determine trade-offs between the use of manpower and vehicles is also developed and a numerical example is presented. The greatest value of this research is the potential for use in various areas of study concerning RPV maintenance. This report does not address questions of operational effectiveness of MMRPVs in the target area.
