Abstract : The report investigates two questions posed by the DoD task group on aircraft engine requirements. The first question concerned whether the Poisson distribution as used by the DoD stockage methodology was valid. Analysis of Air Force removal data indicated that it is not. The second question was whether a better stockage computation methodology than the DoD methodology existed. While no definite conclusion could be drawn, attempts to answer the question indicated the importance of recognizing and accounting for forecast error in the methodology. (Author)
