Abstract : This document presents a method for examining how various stockage policies affect the length of time WRAs spend waiting for parts. As a first step, we developed a value measure for parts; then, using value, we created ranked lists of parts to stock at the NADEPs. Value is essentially a part's contribution to reducing the time a WRA spends waiting for parts. If a part breaks frequently and tends to hold up the repair of an expensive end item, then it is very valuable. Since this briefing was given, we have refined the methodology and have devised an additional method for evaluating the short-run effect of supply actions on aircraft availability
