Abstract:

This note presents early results of research towards evauating the Decision Oriented Scheduling System DOSS as an analysis tool. The DOSS is used to model SAC wing scheduling under the B-52 Aircrew Continuation Training Test Program, in order to examine the effects of several alternative policies and procedures on wing performance. It was demonstrated that DOSS is adaptable to a widely different set of rules and policies, and provides a valid model of a typical wings scheduling rules. In the course of examining the effects of alternative policies and procedures on wing performance it was found that additional capability in terms of aircrew and aircraft availability may exist at the test-wings of the B-52 Aircrew Continuation Training Test Program. The note describes the extent of this additional capability and shows how such additional capability could be used for increased alert and training.
