The methods and results of this work represent a first step in quantifying the relation between consumable parts and end-item readiness. This working note addresses the effect on aircraft availability rates if safety levels in the wholesale Air Force stock fund were to change. Safety levels are the stock levels maintained to cover variations in demand. The results are that as many as 150 additional aircraft, Air Force-wide, could become unavailable due to parts, if safety levels fell to the extent that wholesale fill rates dropped 5 points, from 85 to 80.
