Abstract:

The objective of this study is to determine if the learning curve can be recommended for depot level maintenance workload budgeting and planning. Historical depot level maintenance data, collected through the Air Force maintenance data collection system, is examined by a computerized learning curve analysis program to determine if the learning curve can both explain and predict maintenance actions. The analysis of the limited data available does not yield results within acceptable limits. On the basis of this study, the authors cannot recommend the use of the learning curve for maintenance operations and conclude that the level of detail within the maintenance data collection system does not lend itself to learning curve analysis studies.
