Abstract : The report describes the intermediate logic flow diagrams for a computerize simulation model of U. S. Army aircraft operations. The primary objective of the model is to provide a tool for timely and realistic evaluation of system reliability and maintainability. Also, an objective of the model is the calculation of the operational availability of the aircraft being simulated. The acronym ARMS (Aircraft Reliability and Maintainability Simulation) is given to the model developed in the report. The logic flows are structured to be consistent, where feasible, with the Navy's current VALUE IV (Validated Aircraft Logistics Utilization Evaluation) model. Consistency with VALUE IV is desired so that its programming may be utilized directly, to the maximum possible extent, when the ARMS program is written. It is recommended that the Army proceed with the programming and implementation of ARMS as soon as practicable.
