Abstract:

The objective of this report is to show that Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique with Queueing Q-GERT simulation can be used to evaluate avionic maintenance support systems. And, that simulation analysis can provide data for avionic maintenance resource allocation. This report demonstrates the use of Q-GERT to model an Air Force avionic maintenance system evaluate the maintenance system through simulation determine maintenance resource requirements and, aid management with day-to-day decisions. A Q-GERT network model is developed and translated into computer input format. Simulation of this model is accomplished to provide data for analysis. Analysis illustrates the use of this method as an aid to Command level and Base level decision makers. Results of this analysis leads to the conclusion that Q-GERT can be used to answer critical questions concerning the availability of avionic maintenance support resources.
