Abstract : This thesis studies intermediate repair planning at the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) level. Maintenance information system initiatives (Naval Aviation Logistics Command Management Information System (NALCOMIS)/Naval Aviation Logistics Data Analysis (NALDA)/AIMD Performance Management System (APMS) and an analytical 'systems' model (Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP)) are examined. The study concludes that information system initiatives provide the performance measurement orientation and information processing base required in support of NAVAIR 'tactical' planning. It further concludes that complex logistics problems can be 'modeled' through the AHP. AHP is a promising technique for integrating performance information and expert opinion into a hierarchical, multiple objective planning structure. It provides a method for determining resource requirement priorities in support of readiness goals. The study recommends that research be expanded to include development of a NAVAIR decision support framework utilizing the AHP.
