Abstract:

Logistics test and evaluation, performed during the developmental test and evaluation effort, is an integral part of the aircraft acquisition process. However, there has been no standard approach to conducting logistics test and evaluation. This study researched past and present approaches to aircraft logistics test and evaluation to determine the most effective method for future programs. We conducted this study using the Delphi method. We solicited the expert opinions of 32 individuals from the logistics test and evaluation field using two rounds of questions. We then statistically analyzed the data to ultimately develop a logistics test and evaluation template. We concluded that the ten ILS elements are indeed a valid baseline for a logistics test and evaluation template, that logistics test and evaluation is worth the resources allocated to it, and that the F-22 logistics test and evaluation approach is the most effective.
