Abstract:

This study develops methodology, techniques and procedures for evaluation of age related cost trends associated with major categories of Operating and Support cost. Data sources including Naval Aviation Logistics Data Analysis NALDA history, Chief of Naval Operations Flying Hour Projection System Budget Analysis Reports, Visibility and Management of Operating and Support Cost Maintenance Subsystem and Total Support System reports, and Naval Depot Production Performance Reports PPRs were used to evaluate cost trends over the most recent ten years of cost data. Detailed data was collected on ten major Type Model Series aircraft including the P-3C, S-3A, FA- 18AB, F- 14A, CH-53E, SH-60B, E-2C, SH-3H, CH-46E and A-6E. Evaluations of age related trends and recommendations for changes in current estimating processes when appropriate have been developed for the following cost categories 1 OI Level ConsumablesRepair Parts 2 AVDLRs 3 Aircraft OverhaulSupport 4 Engine OverhaulSupport 5 Petroleum, Oil, Lubricants POL 6 O and I level labor requirements Results of this study clearly demonstrate age related trends of increasing costs linked to aircraft service life fleet age for most of the categories under examination.
