Abstract : This is part of a continuing study concerned with maintenance management at base level. The memorandum suggests making the current system of base maintenance management more effective by strengthening Maintenance Control, improving its information system, decision aids, communication nets, display boards, scheduling rules, job-monitoring techniques, and other tools used in short-run resource allocation. Especially emphasized is the value of an event-dominated information system (in which the most knowledgeable sources report events important to Management Control as they occur). By instituting these changes, the Air Force could alleviate some problems associated with short-run maintenance management, and thereby increase weapon-system effectiveness. (Author)
