Abstract:

This thesis investigates the feasibility of constructing a quantitative model of the Navys aircraft carrier aviation logistic support system. The emphasis is on predicting the effect that an interruption of CODVOD material would have on the sustainability of aircraft readiness. Two forecasting models were constructed one for forecasting full mission capable rates FMC and one for forecasting mission capable rates MC. The conclusion was that aircraft readiness is very sensitive to a prolonged interruption in the external air logistic support pipeline. Recommendations are made to conduct specific carrier operations to extend the range of actual data observations.
