This paper is a case study. We show how the powerful methods of time series analysis can be used to investigate the interrelationships between Alert Availability, a logistics performance variable, and Flying Hours, an operational requirement, in the presence of a major change in operating procedures and using contaminated data. The system considered is the fleet of C-141 aircraft of the U.S. Air Force. The major change in operating procedures was brought about by what is known as Reliability Centered Maintenance, and the contaminated data were due to anomalies in reporting procedures. The technique used is a combination of transfer function modeling and intervention analysis.
