Abstract:

Prior to 1992, organizational maintenance was aligned under a - separate maintenance organization. In 1992, the Air Force restructured into Objective Wings with organizational maintenance aligned under the flying squadrons. This study looks at the impact of this reorganization on maintenance performance factors. The researchers developed maintenance performance models using regression and principal component analysis. Mission Capable Rate and Total Not Mission Capable Maintenance Rate are used as dependent variables. A comparison of key maintenance performance indicators and model predictions before and after the reorganization is accomplished. Based on the results of this analysis, the researchers conclude that there is significant improvement in all dependent variables, model predictions of these dependent variables and improvement in some of the independent variables. Improvement occurred after organizational structure changed, however, other factors not included in the models such as the stand-down of the Alert Force may also contribute to this improvement.
