Final rept. May-Oct 1984
ARMY CONCEPTS ANALYSIS AGENCY BETHESDA MD
Pagination or Media Count:
The test purpose was to determine the suitability of the Dyna-METRIC computer model for analyzing theater wartime aircraft fleet sustainability and parts requirements. Dyna-METRIC was 1 compared to the Overview and PARCOM models used in the CAA Aircraft Spare Stockage Methodology Study and 2 evaluated for representing various controlled-substitution policies. Results suggested that Dyna-METRIC can 1 effectively represent a theater Army helicopter force in wartime, 2 provide comparable results to Overview and PARCOM, 3 perform fleet capability assessments under various controlled- substitution policies, and 4 answer a broad range of aircraft logistics questions. Dyna-METRIC is an excellent model with a high expectation of utility in detailed studies of the Army aircraft logistics system. Additional work would substantiate its applicability and further define and alleviate its limitations. Keywords include Aircraft Spares Spare parts Logistics War reserves Stockage requirements Inventory management PARCOM Dyna-METRIC Computer model.
