Abstract:

The purpose of this MBA Project was to provide a comprehensive analysis of the supporting requirements for the V-22 Osprey from the perspective of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The primary objective was to assist in determining the specifics that will be necessary to support the successful fielding of the weapon system. Various analysis techniques help identify and document specific requirements, including pilot training, maintenance personnel training, spare parts support, and contracting options that will be necessary to support the overall weapon system from tip to tail. The benefit of choosing a commercial support plan in the form of Performance-Based Logistics versus a traditional government supportability plan is measured in readiness. Impacts to cost over the life cycle of the weapon system are measured in flying hours per dollar.
