Abstract:

Three projects were compleded in FY1982. Five new projects were started and ten were carried over from the previous year. This seems to denote a trend in the tenor of IRO activities towards projects covering work areas rather than specific delimited problems. this typifies our work, for example, on development and application of multi-echelon models in provisioning, on level of repair analysis, and on war planning. There is no end to the problems in these areas and, as models are developed and put into use, more and more situations come to light that require attention with this comes the need for model enhancements and extensions. A significant amount of work was carried on in the forecasting area in testing appropriateness of use of the Poisson failure assumption, in evaluating the influence of sortie length on aircraft component failure rates, and updating initial engineering estimates of failure rates as field experience becomes available. The Poisson assumption work was completed and the rest was nearing completion by the end of the year.
