This study performed a preliminary investigation at determining the best continental United States location, or locations, for Air Force maintenance depots with limited support equipment of various types. To accomplish this, a multiple-cover multiple-equipment location-allocation heuristic was developed. The heuristic is used in a brief example to site depots and various types of support equipment, using Air Force demand data. Comparisons are made with present Air Force depot configurations and calculated best locations, to determine for given types of repair, which location or locations of depots and of support equipment at depots could provide better service and lower transportation costs. From these initial findings, conclusions and recommendations for further study are provided.
