Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to describe a logistic support planning procedure that can be applied when acquiring and introducing a new aircraft. New aircraft weapon systems are generally highly complex and very expensive. This increasing complexity has an impact on the ability to support and maintain these weapon systems. When procuring new aircraft, the evaluation should not cover only performance and operational requirements but also logistic supportability and maintainability. Effectiveness in maintaining operational readiness of aircraft is of paramount importance. Sufficient logistic resources must be provided from the time the system is introduced to assure continuing serviceability of units required to meet planned objectives. Keywords Life cycle costs, System effectiveness, Spare parts requirements.
