Abstract:

This research evaluates the suitability of the United States Air Force USAF, Network Repair level Analysis NRLA model as the primary Repair Level Analysis RLA tool for the Royal Australian Air Force RAAF. The research documents existing RAAF and USAF RLA procedures, identifies drawbacks of the present method of RAAF RLA, establishes the improvements offered by NRLA over existing RAAF RLA methods, and identifies possible sources of data for both existing and NRLA based RAAF RLA. Two recommendations are made a. that NRLA not be introduced to the RAAF until data collection difficulties have been resolved, and b. the RAAF use of NRLA be limited to the analysis of complex components or sub systems where its strength in allocating support equipment costs and sensitivity analysis will contribute to a better quality RLA.
