Abstract:

This thesis presents an aircraft weapon system spares support model for determining the number of days of contingency operations which are supportable. Contingency spares support is of paramount concern to Air Force readiness. The translation of current or predicted inventory positions into meaningful measures of military capability is crucial to both operational and logistics planning. Currently the Air Force has no management information system which can accurately assess spares support for its deployed weapon systems. The authors have developed a practical interim planning structure and preliminary decision support model which provides for mid to long-range i.e., 3-10 years spares readiness assessment. It is further demonstrated how a more comprehensive system can be developed for immediate, short-range assessments in support of contingency deployments. Author
