Abstract:

This report analyzes the system-wide costs and benefits of implementing the Integrated Maintenance Information System IMIS for the F-16. The Human Resources Directorate of the Armstrong Laboratory has undertaken IMIS as an Advanced Technology Transition Demonstration ATTD effort. ATTD efforts provide proof-of-principle demonstrations conducted at the system or major subsystem level in an operational environment. They demonstrate the potential of new technologies to provide significant improvements in cost-effectiveness. IMIS has the potential to provide major improvements in the efficiency of aircraft maintenance processes. This report documents the initial effort to develop a rough order of magnitude estimate of the functional costs and benefits of implementing the IMIS technology. Estimates are developed for the Base Case and two IMIS implementation alternatives. The alternatives are analyzed, results identified and conclusions reached.
