Abstract:

The correct choice of a capability assessment model is vital in acquiring an accurate assessment of a weapon systems wartime capability. Studies have demonstrated that the best logistical estimator of aircraft capability is the number of Fully Mission Capable FMC aircraft available for use in a wartime scenario. The AFLCXRPA Logistics Requirements Analysis Model LOGRAM estimates weapon system capability by estimating aircraft availability based on the percentage of wartime spares requirements provided by estimated on hand assets. Dyna-METRIC, however, estimates aircraft availability based on the number of FMC aircraft for a given stockage position. A LOGRAM data base was evaluated using Dyna-METRIC to determine differences in aircraft availability estimates. Dyna-METRIC produced a lower estimate of aircraft availability than did the LOGRAM model. Research indicated that a mixed model, using LOGRAM to develop the data base and Dyna-METRIC to provide the aircraft availability estimates would provide a blend of the strong points of each model.
