Abstract:

This investigation measures the productivity efficiency of the San Antonio Air Logistics Center, Aircraft Division between October 1983 to May 1985. This thesis consisted of developing a multiple input, multiple output Data Envelopment Analysis DEA model and a multiple input single output regression model to measure productive efficiency. The data base consisted of time series data drawing only from the Aircraft Division. The results of the DEA models showed the Aircraft Division to be 100 percent relative efficient during four of the 20 months studied as well as five out of the seven quarters. Extensive interpretations of the DEA results was restricted due to having data for only 20 months. The regression analysis only showed that perhaps total labor hours direct labor hours overtime hours could be a predictor of total aircraft produced. No regression model for measuring productivity could be developed from the data due to the limited availability of data.
