DEVELOPMENT OF AN ABSTRACT MODEL FOR AEROSPACE MAINTENANCE SYSTEMS.
NORTH AMERICAN AVIATION INC DOWNEY CALIF SPACE AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS DIV
This report describes the development and operation of a digital computer model capable of simulating aerospace maintenance systems. Model scope is concerned with both prelaunch maintenance activity performed to prepare an aerospace system for launch and post-launch maintenance activity performed during the mission. A distinct sub-model has been developed for each phase. The model routines are written on a general basis, employing the SIMSCRIPT program language, to enable model application to a variety of aerospace programs. Model flow patterns are generally deterministic with allowances for disruptive events caused at random times by hardware malfunctions. The model is assigned to produce predictive output information regarding the operation and efficiency of the maintenance system during the time period of interest and its contribution to the aerospace program in terms of schedule fulfillment.
