Abstract:

This thesis develops and demonstrates a method for improving the construction of Base Level Self-Sufficiency BLSS kits. This is accomplished by utilizing a cumulative density function describing the probability of Y or fewer downed aircraft. This density function is used in an application of marginal analysis in the construction of demonstration BLSS kits. A comparison is then made between the present, proposed, minimization of expected backorders, and the researchers methodology to determine the best. In all cases, the researchers method is shown to have a higher probability of Y or fewer grounded aircraft for the particular Y value of interest. The system under which the BLSS must operate is modeled using the DYNAMO system language so as to ascertain the effects upon BLSS performance with parameter changes. Author
