Abstract:

The Air Force is investigating the use of three levels of aircraft maintenance. This work examines the effect of maintenance resource collaboration and a centralized repair facility on a critical line replacement unit for a major Air Force weapon system. Maintenance data is collected, summarized into probability distributions and used in a discrete event simulation model to examine the impact of changes to the Air Force hierarchical maintenance structure.
