Abstract:

This report contains the results of a comparison of the Aircraft Availability Model AAM with the Variable Safety Level VSL model. Both models compute spares safety levels in relation to funding levels. The AAM was developed by LMI for the Air Staff and has been used in recent years to evaluate Air Force spares programs and budgets. The VSL model was used by the Air Force Logistics Command AFLC prior to FY83 to compute spares requirements within the Recoverable Consumption Item Requirements D041 System. The purpose of the comparison was 1 to determine if use of the AAM would result in significantly improved supply performance in the Aircraft Replenishment Spares Program Budget Program 1500, BP-15 and 2 to assess the changes in funding profiles that could occur if the AAM were used for BP-15 allocation. The results indicate strongly that use of the AAM would lead to improved supply performance.
