Abstract:

The Aircraft Sustainability Model ASM is an item-specific inventory model that relates investments for spares to aircraft sortie generation capability during a conflict. An important advantage of the ASM is its ability to produce an entire curve relating a wide range of investment levels to the resulting sortie generation capability, allowing Air Force planners to trade off spares investment and capability. Moreover, the algorithm that builds the curve explicitly trades off investment in line replaceable units installed directly on aircraft versus their constituent shop replaceable unit subassemblies. These features, together with the computational efficiency of the code, have led to rapid acceptance of the ASM within the Air Force Logistics Command AFLC. AFLC is now incorporating the ASM into the Requirements Execution Availability Logistics Module REALM of the Weapon System Management Information System WSMIS. The ASM is being used in WSMISREALM to compute item requirements and to execute the Air Force budget for the reparable spares portion of War Reserve Materiel WRM. This users manual explains the use of the PC-version of the ASM, Version 1.5.
