Abstract : Usage rates for aviation items are a basic input to the computation of the range and depth of spare parts carried in support of deployed aircraft. The 3M Aviation Usage Rate System was developed to provide these rates. Following an extensive evaluation, the Aviation Supply Office recently implemented this system to serve as the primary source of data for updating aviation equipment support requirements. This user's manual describes the operation of this usage rate system and its application in the aviation allowance function. (Author)
