Abstract:

The Optimum Supply and Maintenance Model OSAMM is designed to simultaneously optimize support and maintenance policies for a new equipment. Inputs to the model are limited to the types of information that should be available early in development when the maintenance concept is being formulated. The model determines optimal Maintenance Task Distribution MTD and Replacement Task Distributions RTD for the major items in an equipment. It also compares the cost of throwing away an item with the cost of repairs. In making these decisions the model considers the spares, special test equipment and special repairmen that will be needed to support the maintenance policy. Other costs such as transportation, cataloging and documentation are also considered. The users guide gives a brief description of the model and defines the inputs that are required. It also explains the models output. Keywords include Multipurpose Test Equipment Optimal allocation Level of repair analysis LORA modelling and Supply and maintenance modelling.
