Abstract : This report describes a basic, cost-effective mathematical model for determining optimal maximum times for aircraft engines, and some modifications to the basic model to cover related problems. Two modified models are described. One is for determining the oldest engine that would be economical to use in lieu of using overhauled engines during aircraft phase-out programs. The other provides for determining optimal combinations of maximum time and Jet Engine Base Maintenance Return Rate policies. Related cost analyses are also provided, covering discussions of overhaul costs at depot and repair costs at bases, and sensitivity of the model to errors in input cost factors. (Author)
