Abstract : A joint agency study group was formed to examine the capacity and capacity utilization of the aircraft industry. The study group evaluated existing and planned capacity against present and future military, commercial and foreign market demands. The costs to DoD of maintaining extra capacity were estimated, and the contributions of this extra capacity to national surge and mobilization needs, furthering competition and advancing the technology base were assessed. Finally, the study group identified policy alternatives which might be implemented by the government to achieve a more cost effective balance between industry capacity and likely total demand for peacetime and emergencies.
