Abstract : The Directorate of Management Sciences conducts and sponsors studies and research of significant logistics issues. We use, modify, and develop new or improved methods, models, and tools to manage logistics resources. In our 1984 and 1985 Annual Reports we described our goal as the development of a capability to quantify the relationship between logistics resource decisions and operational effectiveness. In 1987 we intend to concentrate on four major objectives. We want to have our algorithm that relates aircraft spares investment to peacetime aircraft availability ready for implementation in AFLC's recoverable spares requirements determination system (D041) by the end of the year. In order to help AFLC move toward more responsive logistics support to the operating forces in the early part of a war, we intend to demonstrate the effect of a specific change in depot maintenance scheduling policy on operational effectiveness. We intend to begin quantifying the relationship among investments in Stock Fund Items (repair parts), maintenance awaiting parts items, and aircraft downtime. We will continue to enhance the ability of AFLC's Weapon System Management Information System (WSMIS) to project the number of aircraft available to generate sorties on a daily basis during the first 30 days of war.
