Abstract : Recently, the Tactical Air Command changed its maintenance plan so that now the entire Air Force is on a 66-1 maintenance concept. Flight-line maintenance personnel will be available to do shop work under this concept. The Air Force is also changing its method for determining spare levels with the advent of the Advanced Logistics System. These two changes will have an impact on many of the decisions made during the development of a weapon system. One of the largest impacts will be in the logistics area, especially in the level of repair analysis. The report describes the current state of the technology available for decisions which determine the level of repair or discard (LOR) policies. A methodology based on the research which defined the state of LOR technology is recommended which considers both the availability of flight-line personnel to do shop work and the new spare level policy of the Air Force.
