Current United States Air Force (USAF) plans are to retain aircraft fleets for unprecedentedly long service lives, which may be as long as 80 years. The safety, aircraft availability, and cost implications of that fleet-retention policy are unknown. This study is part of Project AIR FORCE’s Aging Aircraft Project to improve the Air Force’s ability to foresee those implications and iden......

Logisticians must plan, in peacetime, for wartime. This report describes a computer model, Dyna-METRIC, that can help the logistician to forecast future performance and identify wartime logistics constraints. The report discusses the model's general functional characteristics and capabilities, and a simple example is employed to demonstrate both the model's interfaces (input files and output repor......

Policy analysis has always involved great uncertainty. Tools have been available for handling some of that uncertainty, but policy analysis work in many fields has fallen into stereotyped problem formulations and analytical approaches. In particular, treatments of uncertainty are typically incomplete and often conceptually wrong. This report argues that these shortcomings produce pervasive systema......

Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm were characterized by unanticipated levels of demands for U.S. Air Force (USAF) fighter logistics materials and services — sometimes high, sometimes low, but seldom what was predicted during peacetime planning. Peacetime predictions about the required kinds, quantities, and locations of critical logistics resources were frequently wrong — often......

This Note describes a prototype management system designed to help logistics managers assess wartime readiness and identify resources and policy changes that could dramatically improve it.The system, known as the Combat Support Capability Management System, would detect situations where theater wartime sortie capability might be jeopardized by spare parts shortages or component repair processes, a......

This report is based on testimony given by Michael Rich to the House Armed Services Committee's Subcommittee on Readiness in February 1986. It traces the evolution of RAND research on an important defense management problem:How to increase the capability of combat forces by improving the ability of combat commanders, resource managers, and planners to assess readiness and sustainability and to tak......

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......
