Abstract:

The inventory models compared performance of two representative war readiness spares kits WRSK for the C-17 aircraft under strategic and tactical airlift scenarios. WRSK stock levels were calculated for a sample of 24 aircraft line replaceable units using the Military Airlift Commands MAC computations and the Dyna-METRIC computer model. The level of support provided by MACs kit was compared to the Dyna-METRIC kit by assessing it with Dyna-METRIC at a 15 percent not mission capable rate. The results showed MACs computations produced a WRSK kit comparable to Dyna-METRICs with respect to cost, stock levels, and aircraft availability for a squadron of 14 aircraft flying tactical airlift missions. Under the strategic airlift scenario with a wing of 39 aircraft, however, there was a large variation in the stock levels and cost for the WRSKS and base level self-sufficiency spares between the MAC and Dyna-METRIC kits.
