Abstract : It is anticipated that the Air-Launched Missile maintenance budget will not increase sufficiently enough to keep pace with maintenance requirements. One option of cutting costs is to decrease overhead by combining facilities. This thesis studies the proposal to combine depot and intermediate level maintenance for Sparrow Missiles. The missile maintenance organization, cycle, performance, and costs are outlined. Factors influencing delays in the maintenance cycle are discussed. A method of determining the impact on total missile inventory costs for one day of maintenance is developed.
