This report documents a prototype model, developed for OASDPAE to estimate aircraft depot maintenance resources consistent with changing force structure policies. The prototype model has three unique characteristics 1 algorithms are provided that can be used to adjust historical resource consumption rates for changes in the mission profile sortie duration and equipment cycles per sortie, 2 indirect depot repair costs 42 percent of the total are not automatically changed when depot workload changes, and 3 the LMI aircraft availability model is used to estimate component repair requirements consistent with aircraft availability goals. The prototype model will function on any IBM compatible PC with at least a 40mb hard disk. A menu system provides the user with flexibility in defining an optional force structure, selecting historical data, and running the model. Outputs include a 5-year resource projection for each major repair category and a complete documentation of each force structure option e.g., inventories, OPTEMPO, data used, assumption.
