Abstract:

The F-15E Availability Model is an analysis tool used in the operational suitability evaluation of the F-15E aircraft during Developmental Test and Evaluation DTE and Operational Test and Evaluation OTE. The model is programmed using FORTRAN and Simulation Language for Alternative Modeling SLAM. The model is used to evaluate the availability, mission reliability, and maintainability of a mature F-15E squadron during various scenarios. Specific parameters being evaluated include mission capable rate, sortie generation rate, break rate, fix rate, and mean repair time. The simulation model uses the information gathered during the DTE and OTE combined with information on the operational Tactical Air Force environment. The model was verified and validated using F-15CD MSIP Multistage Improvement Plan aircraft data inputs by comparing the model output to actual field performance of the F-15CD MSIP aircraft. Volume I includes the background, scenarios, computer language, description, assumptions, verification and validation. Volume II contains the appendices of logic flow charts, list of variables, computer code, output files and run instructions. Keywords Jet fighters Aircraft maintenance Reliability maintainability availability Computerized simulation Test aircraft.
