Part of a larger RAND Project Air Force study on capability-based programming, this report introduces a revealed preference methodology to estimate the value to the United States Air Force of expediting F-15 fighter jet programmed depot maintenance (PDM). Such a valuation estimate would be useful in depot-level cost-benefit analysis. The authors rely on the fact that the Air Force has chosen to pa......

Aging U.S. Air Force fleets have deterioration problems, resulting in increased maintenance workloads. Nowhere are those increases more troubling than in the workloads associated with programmed depot maintenance (PDM), which can be significant, requiring 2,000 to 50,000 labor hours. RAND developed the PDM Capacity Assessment Tool (PDMCAT), applied it to the KC-135 PDM process, with three alternat......

Continuing a sequence of RAND Corporation reports considering aging aircraft and the decision whether to repair or to replace them, this report presents a model of the repair-replace decision and data describing the C-5A cargo aircraft. In the report, the authors examine the decision whether to modify or retire the C-5A fleet. They also extend the modeling approach to evaluate prospective investme......

This technical report describes the F-15 programmed depot maintenance (PDM) process as performed at the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center (WR-ALC) in FYs 2004-2006. WR-ALC has a sequential process that F-15s follow when undergoing PDM. The average WR-ALC F-15 PDM visit runs behind schedule. This problem was reduced in recent years, largely because planned durations became more realistic. Duration......

The Army's medium and heavy tactical wheeled vehicle (TWV) fleets are critical to sustaining its global operations: these are the vehicles that move supplies and equipment to and around the battlespace. The Army has maintained a significant program and made major investments in its TWV fleets because they are such critical assets. The Army's TWV strategy is a key element toward managing its TWV in......

The Army believes that it needs a replacement for the C-23 Sherpa aircraft that provides transport of mission critical, time sensitive (MCTS) cargo and passengers to brigade combat teams conducting combat operations. This issue is particularly relevant in counterinsurgency operations in Iraq and Afghanistan where ground forces are widely dispersed across long resupply distances. This occasional pa......

Although prisoner of war and detainee operations ultimately tend to become quite extensive, military planners and policymakers have repeatedly treated such operations as an afterthought. In reality, such operations can be a central part of the successful prosecution of a conflict. Determining how to gain knowledge from, hold, question, influence, and release captured adversaries can be an importan......
