Abstract : The report presents a decision model to aid decision-makers in evaluating the costs of establishing an Air Force depot maintenance capability at different points in time. The cost elements of depot maintenance are identified and defined in denotative terms. The model incorporates techniques for the explicit treatment of uncertainty, converting dollar requirements into expenditures, and the considerations of inflation and discounting (present value).
