Abstract:

The research for this thesis is concerned with the logistics of air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles. Specific emphasis is placed on the development of models to determine the optimal mix of air launched missiles ALMs to induct for repair each quarter at intermediate level maintenance facilities. The Navy operates three such repair facilities. A set of three models are described which are intended to assist in managing the missile repair process. These models allow for effective control of missile readiness objectives, maintenance budgets, and repair priorities. This thesis proposes three linear programming models for the Naval Air Systems Command to use in planning the repair of air-launched missiles through the Naval Weapons Stations.
