Abstract : This report describes the mathematical algorithms of a prototype version of the Aircraft Sustainability Model (ASM), a model designed to relate U.S. Air Force funding for reparable spares to aircraft sustainability measures. The ASM is a multi-echelon, multi-indenture inventory model that is unique in its portrayal of the transient effects resulting from a dynamic demand environment. Furthermore, the ASM is unique in its ability to simultaneously optimize spare requirements for multiple days of a conflict scenario. Keywords: Aircraft maintenance; Spare parts; Inventory modeling.
