Abstract:

The Aircraft Spare Stockage Methodology Study was conducted primarily to provide the Army with an analytical tool for quick reaction, gross estimation of wartime spare parts requirements and costs as they relates to flying hour and availability objectives. An ability to identify problem parts and possible causes of the problems was also desired. The study compares the potential of five models--Overview, PARCOM, SESAME, and ACIM, and Dyna-METRIC--to meet the study objectives. Overview and PARCOM are recommended for complementary use in estimating wartime spare parts requirements, while Dyna-METRIC is recommended for more in-depth evaluation before its suitability for application to the problem is determined. Data collected and validation problems associated with all the models examined are discussed.
